After eight years with Katina Rigall Zipay as the director of Women in Exhibitions, she is passing the torch to a brand new Board of Directors.
Zipay explains, “It’s been such an honor to serve the women of our industry. I’ve developed resources for the group, including a mentorship program, educational Zoom calls, and our well-attended in-person Women’s Breakfast event that takes place each year at EXHIBITORLIVE. But the richest resource we have is our members, and these women constantly blow me away with how generously they share their most valuable resource of knowledge and experience with each other. At this time, I will step back into an advisory role and allow our new board of directors to continue building upon the success of WIE’s established initiatives.”
The board consists of women who have been active within the experiential and event marketing industry as well as the Women in Exhibitions group, and who have experienced the value and purpose of the group.
The inaugural Women in Exhibitions Board of Directors:
Nayeli Bielva – Happy Projects
Adrienne Fitzgerald – CORT Events
Ellen Kaminski – Exhibit Concepts
Liz Martinez – Steelhead Productions
Maddie Ogren – Access TCA
Julie Richardson – Moss
Courtney Cantor Soice – Hamilton
