Andria Gibbon, CEM has been working in the event industry for 22 years. Starting off on consumer shows, she has learned the organizer’s role in a variety of events from consumer shows and festivals to meetings, conferences and city-wide trade shows. Andria spent the majority of her career working for associations where she gained important perspective on how to run an event for a membership base. In 2011, Andria earned her Certification in Exhibition Management through IAEE which she has maintained ever since and in 2021 was recognized by TSNN with the Outstanding ShowPro Award. Andria joined the North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) in September of 2019 in the role of Director of Events and Operations. She led the team through the tough times of COVID, which saw the cancellation of the annual 2020 NATDA Trailer Show and came back with the in-person 2021 Show breaking all previously set attendance records in NATDA’s history. Shortly after the event, she was promoted to Executive Director of the association and then, several months later, was tasked with leading the team through the transition of the sale of NATDA to Trifecta Collective LLC all the while guiding the team to another record-breaking trade show in 2022. Andria lives in St. Petersburg, Fla., with her husband and two rescue pups, where she also helps run a local animal rescue that has saved thousands of furry lives over the past few years.
