Caroline Schweich - Principal of Fizz Communications
Caroline oversees and manages all production and marketing of trade shows, conferences and events. Fizz clients span a wide range of industries, including automotive, entertainment, technology, social media, fashion, wellness, education, lifestyle and local government.
Caroline has been at the helm of Fizz for over a decade, and, during this time, her commitment, creative solutions, and event strategies have resulted in multi-year contracts with numerous clients including Autobytel Inc., DrivingSales, and Sister Cities of Los Angeles.
Caroline has helped grow the DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES) from its inception in 2008 to one of the leading digital sales and marketing conferences in the automotive sector, drawing over 1200 attendees each year. The conference has doubled in attendance year on year and has attracted the prestigious J.D. Power & Associates as a conference partner for the past three years. Additional conference productions include the Grill, an entertainment conference from TheWrap News, the Presidents Club, the Canadian Dealer Forum, Ward’s Dealer Business Spring Training Program and the Los Angeles Sister Cities Trade Conference.
No event is too big or too small for the Fizz team. We work with clients on one-off and large-scale events throughout the US, Europe and Asia. Our responsibilities span the full spectrum of event production, including development of content and agenda; establishing budgetary estimates – and staying within them!; researching, negotiating, and contracting speakers, talent, and venues; overseeing all aspects of on-site production; and delivering final cost reports.
