Show Director Amy DeCamillis
Amy started her career in the hospitality business, working as a Sales Manager for the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers handling the Corporate Market where she won Sales Manager of the Quarter, 2 quarters. She moved (back) to Colorado to create and manage the catering department for Bolder Concepts, a restaurant management company with 14 restaurants in the group at its peak. She was promoted to Director of Operations and eventually had ownership in several of the restaurants. While with Bolder Concepts she helped implement and facilitate a store level reporting system where each restaurant managed its own P & L’s. An entrepreneur at heart, Amy left the restaurant business to pursue other interests. In 2005, she bought Bella Essentials, which developed and manufactured Bella Mama: A full line of all natural skin care products made specifically for pregnancy and sold in retailers around the country. While running Bella Mama, Amy realized that there was not a trade show that marketed directly to the maternity industry and so in 2006 she and four partners launched the MOM2B Trade Show. With an average of 150 booths marketing directly to the trade industry, the show was held twice a year in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. After selling Bella Mama and stopping MOM2B Trade Show, Amy started her consulting business, her favorite client being the Denver Biz Tech Expo – running all aspects of the operation. Happily married for 11 years, four kiddos. I enjoy being busy! I love to hike, walk, travel, but mostly I like hanging out with my family.
