AAPA Selects Hutman Marketing Corp. To Manage Annual Convention Exhibits

The American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) is pleased to announce that it has selected Hutman Marketing Corporation, of Wellington, Fla., to assist AAPA in the management of exhibit sales, and serve as exhibit services director for its annual conventions. 

Hutman Marketing will also support AAPA's efforts in gathering new AAPA members. 

"Hutman Marketing Corporation is truly unique in its ability to utilize its experience in the maritime, port, government, cruise and supplier industries to build rapport and employ its fine-tuned marketing and sales strategies to showcase the benefits its clients deliver," said Kurt Nagle, AAPA's president and CEO.  "Jacqueline Hutman, the company's president, has worked extensively in the seaport industry, creating a distinctive capability to work personally with industry leaders and decision-makers.  That is primarily where the company's competitive advantage lies, and through its one-on-one relationships and specialized trade show exhibitor management and support."

This year's AAPA Annual Convention, to be held Oct. 25-29 in Galveston, Texas, will showcase the importance of modern, secure, navigable seaports to the economies of countries throughout the Western Hemisphere. America's seaports deliver prosperity through trillions of dollars annually in domestic and international trade, and by supporting millions of trade-related jobs.
