Nearly a year ago, Nick Coston, Private OOH Planner, Buyer & Industry Consultant / Counselor, made a pledge to invite a deserving individual to this year’s 2019 OOH Conference in Las Vegas. Coston announced his commitment in a LinkedIn post which read in part:

“As I begin packing for 4 days for #GO2018 in Austin, that’s 28 days of clothes in dog years for me, I want to reiterate how serious I was about the big OOH companies inviting their well-deserving, local ad reps with them. So serious that for next year, I will select one, outstanding local OOH rep to attend the whole convention, & will pay in full for their expenses. They will be my guest, sort of an OOH scholarship. Free/gratis, zilch cost, no charge, a true reward for a job well done. #bemyguest2019″

 

OOH Today shared Coston’s pledge in a post on May 4, 2018 here⇒ Nick Coston Pledges Money Where His Mind Is — ‘Local OOH Reps Belong at Annual Conference’ and Nick will Pay

Nick Coston, Private OOH Planner, Buyer & Industry Consultant/Counselor, is not a large corporation.  His is not independently wealthy.  He is in fact, an OOH working person just like you and I. Nick made the generous pledge of a ‘full ride scholarship’ for an outstanding local OOH rep to attend the 2019 OOH Convention. Nick is a generous person obviously and he is putting his money where his mind is to advance the cause of including local, front-line sales people at the annual OOH conference.

The point to be made, more local OOH reps should attend the annual OOH Convention. The conferences are very valuable for personal and industry networking, education and growth. Coston believes the big OOH companies should be inviting their well-deserving, local ad reps to the annual ‘show.’  The impact of dozens of local reps in attendance, with all the trappings of having ‘new blood’ sharing and participating, would raise the event’s high jump bar.

Without further ado, Nick Coston’s selection as his guest for the 2019 Out of Home Conference is,
Kurt Rutherford of Eastern Outdoor.

Kurt Rutherford of Eastern Outdoor.

“Rutherford has spent 32 years as Eastern’s primary sales person.”  Nick describes Rutherford as “a provider of exceptional service, responsive when sick, on vacation or at home after work hours.”  He goes on praising Rutherford, “finds ways to make budgets work, has strong creative insight, never complains and a real easy-going demeanor. Kurt knows the market, is well liked by his peers, never boasts.  Loves golf, comes from long time Baltimore family, is married, with 2 kids.”

Rutherford will receive airfare, full conference admission and hotel accommodations.

Congratulations Kurt Rutherford and high praise to Nick Coston for his commitment to Outdoor Advertising and helping others.
