Linda Jo Thornberg is the President of the Pittsburgh Business Show. She works with businesses of all industries and sizes including small, medium, and multi-location businesses. Linda Jo specializes in brand awareness, local PR and social media integration, as well as online reputation, online review and testimonial generation. Linda Jo’s passion has always been business development, working to make sure that people make the right connections to help run their business. Linda Jo loves leadership and empowering people to do the right thing, whether it is in their daily life or in their careers.

Her background has uniquely positioned her to run the Pittsburgh Business Show and to continue to make it successful. Linda Jo has nearly 20 years of experience running large-scale events at multiple venues across the country, including business-to-consumer shows, golf outings, trade shows, and more. These experiences has helped to prepare her to create one the largest B2B shows in the northeast United States.

During the First Annual Pittsburgh Business Show, Linda Jo was proud to build and produce an event that became the most successful B2B show in the Pittsburgh region. Linda Jo wants business owners to see the vision of the Pittsburgh Business Show and to help them make connections, while educating and learning about business, products, and more, and then drive their revenue through relationships and leads. Being a part of the Show means that everyone involved is creating a legacy for businesses in the region for years to come.

“The feedback that we received from the first Show was overwhelmingly positive, with speakers, sponsors, vendors, and attendees saying that this one-of-a-kind show was a great stepping stone for people who want to engage the Pittsburgh market. We know the 2018 Show will be bigger and even better. The Show was both great for new business opportunities, as well as a great source for learning new information to run and grow our businesses,” said Linda Jo.

Linda Jo grew up in the Mon Valley area of Pennsylvania and pursued her professional career throughout the northwestern part of the United States. She returned to Pittsburgh after 20 years and knew that she was home. Her professional background is in corporate retail and marketing with over 20 years in the industry. She attended Edinboro University of PA and Mercyhurst College and focused her education on communication and management.

She is very involved in the local Chambers of Commerce, various networking events, and in her local community. She is an avid sports fan and loves anything to do with Pittsburgh sports, including the Pirates, the Penguins, and the Steelers.
