A Message From Your Show Manager

Jennifer Wallin, Show Manager

Thank you for being a part of the 52nd annual Southern Christmas Show! 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 in 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 Shows in Memphis and Orlando.  I joined Marketplace Events in 2016 as the Brand Manager for our portfolio of Holiday Shows.  I am now Show Manager for the Southern Christmas Show and the Southern Spring Show—two community institutions held each year at the Park Expo & Conference Center.  I am particularly excited to have the opportunity to work on the finest Christmas Show in all of North America.  It is an honor to work on such a beloved event. I look forward work with you, our valued exhibitors, for many years to come.
