H.H. Backer Associates received recognition for its rebranded and redesigned Total Pet Expo fall trade show.
Colette Fairchild, the show's director, was awarded Show Manager of the Year at the Trade Show News Network/The Expo Group Awards. The awards organizer also donated $500 to Wounded Warrior on behalf of Fairchild.
H.H. Backer Associates also received The Art of the Show award for best website promotion from the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE). The IAEE wards recognize top performances in both trade and public events in a number of categories.
"I'm thrilled to receive the Show Manager of the Year award and have H.H. Backer recognized for our new website," Fairchild said. "Our team worked exceptionally hard this year to significantly improve our events and make the attendee and exhibitor experiences much better."
Backer's 2014 spring show will be held April 9-11 in Atlantic City, N.J. The fall show will be held Sept. 19-21 in Rosemont, Ill.
