Exponation, LLC Names Gibbs President, COO

Publish date:

Exponation, LLC - which produces Digital Signage Expo (DSE), Interactive Technology Expo (ITE), Out-of-Home Network Show (OOHNS) and LightShow/West (LSW) - has named Chris Gibbs president and Chief Operating Officer.

In a company reorganization that reflects the organization’s fast-paced growth, Gibbs, who was formerly executive vice president of Exponation, LLC and is one of the founding company executives, will assume the day-to-day responsibilities immediately.

Angelo Varrone, Exponation co-founder and CEO said, “Chris’ drive and focus on customer ROI are among the many reasons why Exponation continues to have consistent success and growth, while other business-to-business firms continue to suffer through more rounds of cutbacks. Above all else, Chris has demonstrated intelligent and consistent leadership ability and that is exactly what Exponation needs to help our customers grow and prosper in the future.”

Varrone added, “Digital Signage Expo is a shining example of Chris’ significant contribution, helping it to become one of Trade Show Week's ‘Fastest Fifty’ events last year, citing its remarkable growth from 2004- 2006.” Digital Signage Expo has continued its record setting growth pace with impressive gains in 2007 and 2008 and has already booked more exhibit space for 2009 than ever before in the show’s six year history.

Digital Signage Expo, Interactive Technology Expo, and Out-of-Home Network Show will be co-located at the Las Vegas Convention Center for an even bigger exposition to run February 24 - 26, 2009. To exhibit or attend any of these three shows, visit www.digitalsignageexpo.net.
