The Saint John Board of Trade recently announced the recipients of its 2012 Outstanding Business Achievement Awards. At its 28th awards dinner, Master Promotions accepted the Entrepreneurial Achievement Award.
Wendell Howes began Master Promotions in 1973 with one show in Saint John organized from a makeshift office in his basement. Expansion began throughout Atlantic Canada and Master Promotions now owns 40 trade and consumer shows across the country, managed by 28 employees from offices on both coasts.
The company’s unique approach to event development, and provision of a seamless exhibiting experience for clients, stands out among the competition and has earned Master Promotions a reputation for producing high quality, focused and very successful events. As founder and president, Wendell has built the company from a small organization to one of Canada's most recognized names in the trade show industry.
