Scott BlackburnScott Blackburn to lead efforts for Deli&Cheese 1on1, the rebranded hosted buyer networking conference

Wells, Maine – September 29, 2015:
Long time Natural Products and Alternative Health media guru, Scott Blackburn is joining the FirstSource team. He will be a key player in their events Deli&Cheese 1on1 and Meat&Poultry 1on1, part of a series of rebranded hosted buyer networking conferences hosted by FirstSource Events. Scott brings over 15 years of event and media experience, including 4 years with New Hope Natural Media and 5 years with InnoVision Health Media.

“I am excited to get back into the industry and utilize my sponsor and exhibit sales skills as part of an amazing team.” said Mr. Blackburn. “Working on targeted and focused buyer events, as opposed to massive industry trade shows where the small vendors tend to get lost or over looked, is inspiring to me. I spoke with the team at FirstSource about the many changes in store and I am excited to be a part of growing this series of events!” Scott went on to add: “The concept of Buyers coming for two and one-half days to conference sessions and to listen to what suppliers have to offer, then decide which suppliers they are interested in further talking with, is a great concept and I’m very excited to get to work!”

Bill Doherty, President of International Conference Development, LLC, which recently acquired FirstSource Events, said, “We are very excited that Scott will be leading our sales efforts for the FirstSource Deli-Cheese 1on1 event, February 10-12, 2016 in Hilton Head Island, SC. As we rebrand and grow the FirstSource series of events, Scott will play an integral role in helping to recruit participation of the industry’s top suppliers and qualified buyers.”
