“The Don & Mike Show” Gains a Sponsor & Begins Podcasting Twice a Week in 2019

by Jeanne Brei

Beginning Jan. 8, The Don & Mike Show will begin podcasting twice a week—keeping their original Friday podcasts and adding a Tuesday Don & Mike Show—Extra. Plans are for the new Tuesday show to highlight organizational news and interviews from EDPA, ESCA, IAEE, EACA and many more organizations related to tradeshows, events and experiential marketing. In addition, it will be “Brought to You by SMT Expo,” their first sponsor.  A division of Glenmore Industries, an OEM manufacturer of a wide variety of home, industrial and automotive products, SMT Expo is headquartered in Edison, N.J., and has manufacturing facilities and offices in China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the U.K. SMT stands for Smart Modular Technology and is the exclusive provider of the industry’s leading, full floorplan, fabric booth system and the sole manufacturer of this revolutionary tool-free system.

According to show co-host Mike Morrison, “2018 was an astounding year for The Don and Mike Show and with the growth of the interviews conducted at both EDPA Access and IAEE Expo! Expo!, the show is moving to two shows a week starting January 8.” He adds, “We are developing great content and super guests each show and after a year and a half, we are continuing to grow. We are looking for 2019 to be a break-out year for the Don & Mike Show and are looking for news and interviews to make the show a great listen for the industries of tradeshow, event and experiential marketing.”

Upcoming interviews include these industry people:

* Dasher Lowe – EDPA

* David Dubois – IAEE

* James Zacharias – Brumark

* John Washko – Mohegan Sun
