Meeting Professionals International’s World Education Congress will take place in Las Vegas June 14 – 17. As part of its programming, WEC will present The Superwomen of Vegas panel, which will take place on June 17. In the hyper-competitive hotel and destination marketing landscape of Las Vegas, these superwomen have risen to prominent leadership roles—but it hasn’t been easy.
Michelle Allgauer (pictured right), senior vice president of education & engagement for Financial Services Institute, will moderate the panel, which includes:
- Lisa Messina, vice president of sales for Caesars Entertainment Corporation
- Chandra Allison, senior vice president of sales and marketing at the Venetian Resort, the Palazzo and Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas
- Stephanie Glanzer, chief sales officer and senior vice president for MGM Resorts International
- Devin Lewis, director of regional sales for the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority Washington DC Regional Office
How did they find their positions of strength while balancing the needs of their constituents, stakeholders, communities and families? What strategies did they implement to overcome stereotypes and labels, earn the trust of their peers and grow their careers in one of the world’s fastest-paced cities and leading meeting and event marketplaces?
Panel attendees can expect to learn candid lessons about overcoming obstacles and gain invaluable advice on how to differentiate yourself in a competitive landscape.
WEC Vegas at Caesars Forum provides attendees with the opportunity to get together with their peers, roll up their sleeves, sharpen their pencils and draw up the blueprint of what the future of their profession looks like. With last year’s WEC Grapevine, MPI safely and effectively convened a hybrid experience to demonstrate how to meet safely and lead our industry to recovery. For more info, visit wec.mpi.org.
