Paul_Mecurio_2015_IARW_WFLO_Convention_Keynote_250x207Paul Mercurio, an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning comedian, will deliver the closing keynote address at the 124th International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) and World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) Convention & Expo, to be held April 26 – 29, 2015, in Orlando, Florida at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria.

Corey Rosenbusch, President and CEO of IARW and WFLO, says, “Paul’s speech will be the perfect conclusion to four days of exciting learning, business discussions and networking. Everyone will leave Orlando on high note after enjoying the wit and humor that he will deliver.”

With a resume that includes award-winning comedy writing and performing for “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and multiple appearances on “The Late, Late Show”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and many others, Mercurio is famous for leaving a career as a Wall Street mergers-and-acquisitions lawyer and investment banker to pursue comedy full-time with the encouragement of Jay Leno, who had hired him to write jokes for “The Tonight Show” while he worked in the financial world.

Mercurio will have attendees roaring with laughter as he pokes fun at the business world, global events, and various social and political trends and happenings. His closing keynote presentation will take place on April 29 during the Closing General Session from 10:00am – 12:00pm.

The Expo tradeshow will be a major networking and gathering place throughout the event as nearly 100 companies display their products and services.
