Posted on November 21, 2014 with 0 comments

USGIF is pleased to announce Jeff Ley, USGIF vice president of business development and exhibitions, was named a 2014 Expo Group Show Manager of the Year (SMOTY).

Ley was named SMOTY for tier IV events—those with 701 to 1,500 booths—and received his award Nov. 15 at the Trade Show News Network (TSNN) Awards Gala at the Cleveland Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio.

“This award appropriately reflects Jeff’s dedication and hard work year after year for all USGIF events, not the least of which was working through the challenges presented with the postponement of the GEOINT 2013 Symposium as a result of the federal government shutdown,” said USGIF COO Aimee McGranahan. “Jeff continues to raise the bar each year, and our team is very proud that he is being honored with the SMOTY Award. It is very well deserved.”
