2020 Exhibits Expands Reach in Houston and Las Vegas


2020 Exhibits, a global leader in total tradeshow and event management, recently expanded its business development teams in both Houston and Las Vegas, announcing the appointment of Kevin Hale and Scott Podsim in Houston and Jill Syler in Las Vegas. Signifying the company’s nationwide growth, these appointments come at the time when 2020 Exhibits recently expanded its Las Vegas-based operations, to further strengthen its event and tradeshow management capabilities in one of the top three tradeshow destination venues in North America.

“All are seasoned pros, each bringing a deep understanding of marketing, creative and client services, as well as experience delivering programs for many leading brands,” said Bob Babine, president of 2020 Exhibits. “Their breadth of experience in event and tradeshow marketing strategy and execution will help our clients fully leverage their brands to drive ROI and ROO.”

With more than 16 years of event, exhibit and project management experience, Hale is an accomplished veteran, executing turn-key project management and delivery for hundreds of shows annually. Podsim has a proven background in new business development, with almost 20 years of sales, marketing and business development experience focused primarily upon creative program and event management. Working with clients across the globe, Kevin and Scott will be based at the firm’s corporate headquarters in Houston, Texas.

In Las Vegas, Syler brings more than 10 years of marketing and business development experience to 2020 Exhibits. No stranger to the event and tradeshow industry, Syler most recently led regional business development efforts for one the world’s leading automotive leasing companies. She is active in the Las Vegas tradeshow and convention industry, serving on the board of directors for the Convention Services Association of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Territory, an adjunct to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors’ Authority (LVCVA).
