John Root To Step Down at San Mateo County Expo Center

John Root will step down May 3 as general manager of the San Mateo (CA) County Expo Center after 30 years in facility management. "It's time for me to explore other things I want to do, which may or may not be involved in the facility management industry," said Root. Since becoming general manager of the San Mateo County Expo Center in 1987, Root has helped transform the facility into one of the leading hosts of consumer shows in Northern California. The Expo Center, including the annual 10-day fair, attracts more than one million visitors annually to consumer and trade shows. Root was previously general manager of the Cow Palace in Daly City for more than 11 years.
