Exhibit Partners is proud to announce the addition of Travis Stanton to its team of exhibit, event, and experiential marketing professionals. As Director of Strategy, Travis will lead internal marketing and brand positioning, while also working directly with EP clients on strategies to help them define brand stories, optimize marketing investments, and exceed corporate objectives.
"We are thrilled to welcome Travis and put his superpowers to work for us and our clients," said Matt Williams, CEO of Exhibit Partners. "Travis and his strategic impact will play a big role in our continuing evolution from EP's exhibit-house roots to its future as a brand storytelling agency."
Since 2005, Travis led content strategy at an industry-leading magazine, where he served as Managing Editor, Editor, and Editor in Chief. He has also worked as an associate producer for the Miss Universe Organization, Editor of both Corporate EVENT magazine and Lavender Magazine, Process Development Analyst for Best Buy’s Corporate Headquarters, and as a brand manager for clients such Target, White Wave Soy Milk, and T Magazine (the official magazine of the LPGA).
His work as a writer, researcher, and strategist has garnered national and international recognition, including the American Society of Business Publication Editors’ (ASBPE) Magazine of the Year Award, the Minnesota Media and Publishing Association’s Greg Carey Leadership Award, several Maggie Awards from the Western Publishing Association (WPA), the 2007 Young Leader Award from ASBPE, the 2010 MMPA Innovator Award, and multiple global honors from Trade Association and Business Publications International.
“Having spent two decades researching exhibit- and event-marketing strategy — and spoken extensively on experiential design, global exhibiting trends, and elevated brand experiences — I am excited to put that expertise to work for EP and its clients,” said Stanton. “I have witnessed the evolution of Exhibit Partners over the years, seen the organization’s exciting vision for the future, and bonded with the incredible and experienced members of the senior leadership team. And every step along the way has made me more enthused about joining the EP team.”
"We are extremely excited to add Travis Stanton to the EP family. With his expertise and
industry knowledge, we will expand our value-added offerings to new levels,” said Candy Kirchner, president and COO of Exhibit Partners “Through data-driven analytics,
strategic decision-making, storytelling, and brand engagement, Travis will solidify our
capabilities in strategic and experiential marketing."
