Who is Frypan? History & Experience

About Betsy Fry, Frypan’s owner & project leader

  • Betsy’s 30 years of experience covers every aspect of trade shows.
  • Producing her own events or developing trade shows nested within others' events, she can take empty space & fill it with commerce.
  • Having exhibited at national shows for over a decade, she knows what vendors or exhibitors need & expect on the job.
  • As a decorator, Betsy is skilled in logistics.  Appearance is vital to any event, but it takes a lot more than just putting up some pipe & drape to make a trade show work well.

Who are the Pardners?

Obviously, we want folks to remember the name Fry, because Betsy Fry and her extensive experience is at the heart of all of we do. But it’s Frypan’s idea that everyone we work for is a Pardner. When we’re on the job for you, your priorities are central to success – and we mean that to include your concerns with venues, suppliers, participants, officials, and audience too.
It’s a responsive partnership, so we spell Pardner like your sidekick would – the friendly way.
