Behind the scenes: Attention to details spells success

Linda Jacobs, director of special events for the Mississippi Business Journal, was hired just a couple of months before the biggest event of her business year: the sixteenth annual Mississippi Business EXPO `99, scheduled for this Wednesday and Thursday at the Mississippi Trade Mart in Jackson.

“There has been a lot of pressure trying to do in two months what usually takes six to eight months,” Jacobs said. “But the staff at here has been very helpful in offering any information that was used in previous years. With this and years of experience working with other events, I was able to successfully pull it all together.”


… we’d like to ask for your support. More people are reading the Mississippi Business Journal than ever before, but advertising revenues for all conventional media are falling fast. Unlike many, we do not use a pay wall, because we want to continue providing Mississippi’s most comprehensive business news each and every day. But that takes time, money and hard work. We do it because it is important to us … and equally important to you, if you value the flow of trustworthy news and information which have always kept America strong and free for more than 200 years.

If those who read our content will help fund it, we can continue to bring you the very best in news and information. Please consider joining us as a valued member, or if you prefer, make a one-time contribution.
