ABOUT TRADESHOW BOOTCAMP:
Tradeshow Bootcamp was founded by Katie Hunt of Kelp Designs, but made possible by many supportive folks in the stationery industry! Tradeshow Bootcamp evolved from the fact that we are members of a very collaborative industry and the belief that the more we can share with one another, the stronger our individual businesses and our stationery community will become. Tradeshow Bootcamp has helped more than 325 stationery + gift companies successfully prepare for large tradeshows and the wholesale market. We look forward to having you join us!
