What Clients Say

Jim Bio Pic 294x294Sally O’Shea served as the Trade Show Manager for the Penn Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (PANTS) representing all segments of the green industry for 14 years. In this capacity she managed every facet of the show including exhibitor and attendee services, facilities management, union and non-union labor and decorating vendors. She also oversaw and worked closely with the volunteer leadership of the event and the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Landscape and Nursery Association (PLNA).

“Sally is a consummate, dedicated professional. She maintains a calm and bright demeanor even when chaos of the event surrounds her. Always with a smile, her attention to detail and the satisfaction of all engaged parties is unparalleled. It is rare these days to find the complete package of professional integrity and personal investment in one individual. Sally does it with ease.”

PANTS Committee Member


JC Henry III“Our work with O’Shea Events aimed to improve our brand in the Hardscape community. We shared our vision with Sally and the Mid-Atlantic Hardscaping Trade Show (MAHTS) came to be. Sally became our Captain and blended in with our staff very quickly. We were honored when MAHTS was awarded one of the TSW Fastest 50 by Tradeshow Week. What we appreciated most about working with Sally and her team was that they worked with the highest level of honesty and integrity and the quality of their work consistently exceeded our expectations.”

Dwight Price 20a77f9“When our meeting planner left just before our Electric Expo, O’Shea Events stepped up and filled our needs. Sally O’Shea did a terrific job, and went on to manage four additional trade shows for us. She is one of a kind: resourceful, hard working, trustworthy, and detail-oriented. And her ability to coordinate smoothly with both our staff and show committees was outstanding – it took a lot of patience! O’Shea Events provides value – you will always get what you pay for, and more. I recommend them most highly.”

O’Shea Events brought together a team of professionals that handled everything from online registration and exhibitor recruitment to onsite event management and security. Sally O’Shea’s contacts and reputation in the events management industry are stellar.”

Mark A Fuss Headshot-cropped“I had the good fortune to engage Sally O’Shea when our organization had a small tradeshow that needed professional management to reach its potential. Under Sally’s stewardship, The Middle Atlantic Hardscaping Trade Show (MAHTS) became a national event with hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees. Her impeccable attention to detail, unflappable demeanor and cheerful disposition made it a joy to have her on our team.”

PatMeinert“As a PLNA board member, serving as chairman of the board as well as the trade show committee chairman, I worked with Sally O’Shea for over 13 years as she managed two different trade shows for our Association. Sally managed a team comprised of PLNA staff as well as a 12 to 15-member show committee comprised of volunteers. One of Sally’s accomplishments was a major, daunting task of organizing and moving a large PA state association trade show from an Expo Center in Pennsylvania, out of state to the Atlantic City Convention Center in New Jersey. The transition was seamless and successful largely due to the hard work, direction and dedication of Sally O’Shea. Sally was the first to arrive and the last to leave throughout the show schedule. No matter what arose, before, during, or after any event Sally always handled it with the utmost professionalism and integrity.”

Jon MAHTS08“I have known Sally O’Shea for over 15 years and worked closely with her at EP Henry for 5 years as program and event manager. Sally’s attention to detail, thoroughness and drive to get it done is what makes her a true professional. Her ability to work under pressure and on time was exactly what our organization needed. Sally’s calm demeanor is impressive, along with her ability to tactfully negotiate and oversee numerous vendors and exhibitors. At the end of the day you know you’re in good hands with Sally O’Shea!”

Marianne Anzaldo 150x150“I have had the pleasure of working with O’Shea Events for over 15 years. During this time, we evolved a two hour installation seminar held in our block plant into MAHTS® – a weeklong show consisting of 70+ educational offerings, a multiple day trade show with hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees plus as many as 5 different networking and dinner events.

“The development, planning and execution of MAHTS involved at various points virtually every employee of our company, at the heart of which was Sally O’Shea. Sally not only seamlessly integrated into the team responsible for pulling off MAHTS, she oversaw the “big picture” and made sure all stakeholders internally and externally were moving in the same direction to accomplish it.

“Sally possesses the vast experience, ability to manage many moving pieces and strong vendor relations that are critical to a successful event. In short, Sally managed our event as if it were her own and never once, through all of the hurdles and challenges, did I ever believe we would not exceed our goals and the expectations of our customers. Sally holds herself to the highest of standards and represents her clients accordingly.”
