Hear from the 2019 IAEE DFW YP Scholarship Winner
"Before attending Expo! Expo! I had never been to a large show that I wasn’t involved with planning. Being on the attendee side for the first time gave me a whole new perspective that will allow me to be a better meeting planner. I can honestly say I learned something new and valuable each day I was in Las Vegas. From the networking opportunities, to programming developed specifically for young professionals, to simply walking the exhibit hall and sitting in session rooms I came home with a list of new ideas and actionable steps to use and share with my team.
As a young professional I sometimes worry that conferences aren’t for me because the focus will be for those further along in their careers or the topics will go over my head. That was absolutely not the case with Expo! Expo!, they did a great job of making sure there was relevant information and experiences to me in my career right now. I highly recommend Expo! Expo! to other young professionals looking for meaningful development opportunities. One of the things that keeps me coming back to IAEE is how welcoming the members are; that spirit of community was evident at Expo! Expo! Everyone I met was excited to connect and not only share what they do in the events industry, but learn about me and what I do. I now have contacts across the globe the next time I have a question, am looking for a recommendation on a product, or just want to pick someone’s brain.
I am so thankful to the DFW IAEE chapter for this experience and their continued advocation for the development of young professionals. I came home to Dallas excited about the future of the Events and Exhibitions industry and my place in it."
