New trade show firm launched

Posted on: September 19th, 2010 by

Jennifer Robinson and Ed Meek, the team that created the largest beverage and food show in the Western Hemisphere are returning to the hospitality industry marketplace with new business development and networking opportunities.
Oxford Expositions LLC will produce tradeshows, conferences and meetings, appointment-based events, and specialty events providing unique networking opportunities in various markets, including hospitality.
Robinson is CEO of the new company and Meek, who founded The Show 25 years ago, is chairman of the board. The Meek family provided the substantial endowment that led to the Meek School of Journalism at Ole Miss.
Not limiting themselves to just a familiar market, Oxford Expositions LLC has launched its first tradeshow, The Broadband Expo, which will focus on deployment of communications technologies to rural America. The Broadband Expo will be held Nov. 1-3 at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas.
Oxford Expositions LLC has offices at 303 West Jackson Ave. in Oxford and can be reached at 662.234.8655 or
