Orlando’s Yulita Osuba Joins TSE’s Exposition Forecasting Board


Oceanside, CA – Yulita Osuba, one of the exhibition industry’s most knowledgeable and connected professionals, has joined the Trade Show Executive (TSE) Exposition Forecasting Board.

Osuba is deputy general manager of the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, one of the busiest and largest venues in the U.S. for shows of all sizes. The most recent TSE Gold 100 included 10 shows that were held at the center.  Offering 2.1 million square feet of prime exhibit space, the massive center is second only to Chicago’s McCormick Place on the TSE list of World’s Top Convention Centers.

Osuba, who has forged strong relationships with many top organizers over the years, will add her voice to the insights that are provided to TSE readers through the monthly Trending & Spending feature, including develop trends and forecasts of growth in the month, quarter and year ahead.  The economics column is the most read column in the magazine, and show organizers use it to help in their monthly and sometimes weekly forecasting tasks.

“We are delighted to welcome Yulita to the Exposition Forecasting Board,” said Darlene Gudea, president of Trade Show Executive Media Group. “The team of 20 industry professionals from associations, show management firms, service contractors and registration firms reflect a wide range of experience and knowledge. We look forward to adding her unique perspective as the manager of one of the best-managed and busiest venues in the nation.”

Osuba has more than 25 years experience in the Florida hospitality industry. She held executive sales positions with the convention centers in Daytona Beach and Tampa before joining the OCCC more 11 years ago.  She currently oversees sales, marketing, event management and other operations at the OCCC.

A familiar face at many industry events, Osuba is a Certified Meeting Professional and member of the International Association of Exhibitions and Events, Professional Convention Management Association and American Society of Association Executives. She has been vice president of the Convention Sales Professionals International and a member of the board of directors of The International Center for Exhibitor and Event Marketing.
