Scott Allison

Scott Allison, CIG's trade show specialist, develops lead-generating event strategies using his strong creative talent and nearly 20 years of marketing and sales experience with Fortune 100 Companies - including significant experience with General Motors, the world’s largest automotive manufacturer and Progress Energy, a major electrical provider/coal producer. 

“Leveraging the Power of the Team” Scott has lead, or contributed to the successful execution of over 1,000 auto shows worldwide, including the Frankfurt Germany, Geneva Switzerland, and Paris France International Auto Show, where he gained international industry acclaim for introducing a new model 6 weeks ahead of production in the U.S., sold during the show, with fully homologated to French vehicle standards.

Possessing a keen eye for detail, and a sense of playful creativity, Scott has been credited with innovative strategies that gave his products that “extra edge” in attracting the attention of consumers.  Whether utilizing a simple technique such as “going dark” with the ambient lighting over the display space in a convention center, or highlighting product with a full array of theatrical “spot” lighting, Scott knows how to evoke the emotional connection between consumer and product.

Following the premise that “everything speaks”, Scott takes the time to understand what is important to his audience and strives to incorporate this in the themes of his advertising creative, conveying complex concepts to the consumer in a simple way.  This philosophy was the impetus behind Saturn’s “Stork” commercial when Scott was challenged to develop a concept that would effectively convey Saturn’s vehicle exchange program.
