Our series aims to highlight the exceptional employees in the events industry. Each Beyond the Booth feature will be a mixture of professional and personal questions illustrating their unique personality. Jayke Lind provides a glimpse into his life. Jayke is the Director of Operations at America’s Beauty Show.

Question: What initially got you interested in your current field of work?
Answer: To be honest, I fell into this position just before COVID, and during COVID when there were no shows, I went through and cleaned up our A2Z database. It sparked my interest in learning all aspects of A2Z and how I can streamline and make things easier for the exhibitors, speakers, and my internal team.

Answer: Meeting so many different people and seeing something that takes many many months come to life.
