We're a community of people that believe there are more opportunities for women to lead in event tech than we see currently. Whether that's starting event tech companies, programming event tech innovations, designing breathtaking event installations - we don't care. Whatever the tech, wherever the event, whoever the woman - we're getting behind you to share stories, meet up, inspire and connect.

I have 13 years experience in the live events industry with 3 years in trade show events and 10 in AV and IT for corporate events and associations. In 2018, I was awarded Supplier of the Year Award from MPI Tennessee and earned my CMP designation. I speak proficient German, enjoy playing in the Nashville Community Band, water skiing, volunteering, and traveling.
I began my professional career in the events and entertainment industry as a dancer, singer, and actress. I started my event business in 1999 and have lead the company to be recognized by the International Live Events Association, MPI Michigan, MPI Greater Orlando, Michigan Meetings and Events Magazine, and Athena International for performance and entrepreneurial leadership.
I am the President of LASSO, a workflow management platform that helps event companies organize, schedule, track, communicate with, travel, and manage their project-based, mobile talent. I focus on helping event service companies simplify the complexities around their workforces, that are pervasive in this industry.
With over a decade of experience in production, I created a production company, Soliman Productions, covering the meetings industry at large. I’m the host and content creator of MPItv and I work with MPl's publication, The Meeting Professional to produce year-round video content. I serve on the Board of Directors as the VP of Marketing & Communications for the MPI Greater Orlando Chapter.
I'm currently the CEO of the Event Tech Tribe and the incoming Vice-President of the Association for Women in Events. I have a long history in the event tech space, having started ShowGizmo, an event app company that grew to be the top app in Australasia as well as dabbling in virtual events before the internet was good enough to cope.
I'm one part creative, one part entrepreneur, a mom, and an event industry speaker. I help meeting planners grow their event attendance with results-driven event marketing strategies and I have a soft spot for event tech that can help enhance event marketing efforts.
I am a Digital Event Strategist, Event Executioner, Tech Whisperer, Collab Evangelist, TechEd and Speaker! I’m passionate about smart technology for hospitality professionals. I educate event professionals on the latest and greatest technologies, as well as practical tech solutions that can make their lives easier and more efficient.
I’m a speaker, writer and business consultant with a background in meeting design, event technology and leadership development. My message is to discover your passion, own it, and don't apologize for your success. Bring other women with you on your way to the top!
