Nancy Schappert has always been intrigued by the business sector. Having worked as a Sales Representative at both Xerox and Oscar de la Renta, she understands firsthand what it takes to drive sales and new business. Coupled with her time in the educational field at Niagara College molding the minds of young marketing students, she was able to accurately notice market gaps in the Niagara Region’s event industry that led to the conception of Niagara Inflatables & Games Inc. in 2002. Although Nancy had many redeeming qualities that allowed her to understand the inner-workings of a new venture, she could not have pursued such an undertaking without her husband Scott who worked at General Motors as a Metallurgist. Given his background in manufacturing, he was able to quickly adapt his knowledge to take over the operational ambiguities of the new business with a minimal learning curve. Together they developed the business from a small, regional backyard event company, to the award winning, provincial leader within the events industry, which it is today.
It didn’t take long after its conception for the business to garner recognition. In 2004 they were recipients of the Niagara Chamber of Commerce New Business Award. It marked the success of the business in a short time, excellence in business practice, and came with the validation of Scott and Nancy’s vision. This first award would lead to many more, such as the Niagara Entrepreneur Award in 2007, and the prestigious Festival and Events Ontario Supplier of the Year award 7 years in a row!
