SWANA Exhibitors Get Twice the Service with New Team

Silver Spring, Maryland — Exhibitors at SWANA events will be getting to know the new sales team which consists of two members: Barbara Divver and Felice Levy of Fern Management Services. Together, Divver and Levy’s extensive background with associations fits in perfectly with the needs and requirements of exhibitors at WASTECON® and other SWANA events. This knowledge and know-how will permit them to seamlessly maintain the level of service excellence that SWANA’s valued trade show display customers have come to know and expect.

“We’re all excited for our loyal customers and new comers to get to know SWANA’s sales team members and experience the extra intangibles that each brings to WASTECON®, SWANApalooza (Landfill Gas and Landfill Symposia co-located with The Road to Zero Waste) and NAWTEC each year,” offered SWANA’s Deputy Executive Director, Meri Beth Wojtaszek.

“We are thrilled to be working with SWANA to continue to grow the sales and marketing program for its events,” said Sue Fern, CEO of Fern Management Services

She added, “We look forward to sharing new options and ideas to strengthen the return on investment for vendor supporters.”
