A Message From Your Show Manager

Jennifer Wallin, Show Manager

Thank you for being a part of the 50th annual Southern Christmas Show! I am Jennifer Wallin and I was named the Show Manager of the Southern Christmas Show in late June.  Though originally from South Carolina, I have lived in Charlotte since 1989, which also means that attending the Southern Christmas Show has been a tradition for my family for many years.  I had the privilege of working for Southern Shows for eight years (2003-2011) as a Show Manager for the Southern Women’s Show in Memphis and Orlando.  Since then I have remained close with the Zimmerman’s and the Southern Shows staff.  I have been with Marketplace Events for just over a year, as the Brand Manager of the five Holiday Shows we produce in Kansas City, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Des Moines and now Charlotte.  I am excited to have the opportunity to work on the finest Christmas Show in the U.S.  It is an honor and a challenge to work on such a beloved community event and I look forward to getting to know you and to working together for many years to come.
