Fall is always a busy time of the year for the CSG team. There is nothing more exciting than seeing the weeks and months of marketing campaigns culminate onsite at our client’s events. Here are a few highlights from our successful fall.

Paige and Rich kicked off the fall travel season with a trip to New Orleans for the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) flagship event, WEFTEC. This trade show gathers water quality professionals from around the world and exceeded all attendance goals.  We heard over and over “WEFTEC is back” and we’re excited to get to work on 2023!

Up next was Dallas, where  the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) hosted its Fall Event—the 3rd largest in history!  Over 1,000 of the most successful and innovative commercial real estate brokers attended the event to network and share with this trusted and accomplished community of CRE professionals.

CSG worked with NALP on a rebrand of their annual meeting which brought together landscape specialists from all over the country for a unique education and networking event.

Next, Carrie presented at American Pet Products Association’s (APPA) Board Meeting, where she got to spend time with some furry friends! APPA is one of the organizers of Global Pet Expo.


Next up was PACK EXPO International, back in Chicago for the first time in four years.  The global packaging and processing industry was there in force with more than 44,000 attendees and over 2,000 exhibitors. Attendance exceeded PMMI’s show goals and surpassed the PACK EXPO International 2018 numbers.

After PACK EXPO International, Paige and Wendy went to San Diego for the National Association of Chemical Distributors’ (NACD) Annual Meeting, where professionals from the chemical distribution materials industry gathered for collaboration and joint innovation. Paige was a guest speaker at this Annual Meeting and shared CSG’s secrets for successful branding.

To round out the year, Heidi, Jaclyn, and Courtney traveled to Orlando for a hugely successful IAAPA Expo, the Global Attractions Industry’s Premier Event.

Just because CSG’s fall event season is over doesn’t mean that we are hibernating for the winter! Spring shows are just around the corner, and we are strategizing and gearing up to deploy breakthrough campaigns for more goal-busting and record-breaking events.
