Traci Sampson, Owner & Event Coordinator

My name is Traci Sampson, and I am the owner and event coordinator with PMA Shows, where I started working in 1998. With two kids at home—one of whom has special needs—PMA, Inc., allowed me to work from home and adjust my schedule as needed to provide for their needs and be a big part of their lives. My family has always been the most important thing to me, and I wanted a job where I could love what I do and still be able to be there for my children. I started out simply making sales calls, and then I worked my way up to become the office manager for the company.

As my kids entered their school-age years, I was able to become even more deeply involved in PMA, Inc., and I loved what I did there so much that I managed every aspect of the company and gained valuable knowledge that can only be learned through hands-on experience. In 2013, the opportunity became available for me to purchase PMA, Inc, and I jumped on the chance to own a company that I had come to know and love so much. I renamed and rebranded to PMA Shows: Promote-Market-Advertise. Dozens of PMA, Inc., exhibitors continued to commit to PMA Shows after I took over the company, and they are still part of many events that I produce today year after year. I often joke that my shows are my “family reunions” because we have such good retention of exhibitors that allows me to see them annually. We bring the most experienced and creative professionals into our events and match them with targeted, eager consumers in need of their products and services.
