After planning the 50th anniversary of The Clio Awards (advertising industry) and executing a 30,000 person trade show at the Javits Convention Center in New York City, while co-locating with the NY Marathon, she contemplated her next move and decided the greatest challenge would be to plan events for meeting planners.
