Expo Square Mark Andrus and key Tulsa State Fair staff were presented with several top awards at the International Association of Fairs and Expositions conference held recently in Las Vegas, Nev. In total, the 2010 Tulsa State Fair won 17 awards in the top division of fairs with more than one million attendees.
“I’m so proud of our 2010 Tulsa State Fair,” says Commissioner John Smaligo, Fair Board Chairman. “Our staff worked extremely hard to put on a quality, entertaining fair, and this long list of awards shows that our peers at other fairs and members agree that we held the top fair in the world. This is a huge deal and I hope we can continue building from here.” Included in the photo are Fonda Cooper, Kara Eschbach, Amanda Bretz, Amanda Blair, Mark Andrus, Tresa Tryon, Sarah Thompson, Phil Cooper, Brandi Herndon and Commissioner John Smaligo.
