you are a marketing assistant for a consumer electronics company and
are in charge of setting up your company's booth at trade shows. Weeks
before the shows, you meet with the marketing managers and determine
what displays and equipment they want to display. Then, you identify
each of the components that need to be shipped and schedule a shipper to
deliver them to the trade-show site. You then supervise convention
personnel as they set up the booths and equipment. Once the show is
over, you supervise the packing of the booth and all equipment as well
as schedule its shipment back to your home office. When the equipment
arrives, you check it into your warehouse to ensure that all pieces of
the booth and all equipment are returned. If there are problems due to
shipping damage or loss, you handle those problems. Your job is
important; at a typical show you are responsible for more than a quarter
of a million dollars of equipment.
You will need to track data about booth components, equipment,
shippers, and shipments. List typical fields for each type of data.
