A message from our Founder

Women in Exhibitions Network was officially launched in 2018 with the aim of supporting the continued professional development of women working in exhibitions and providing opportunities for them to meet and network. As the initiator and founder of this community I feel proud of what we have achieved this far.

The process of expanding the Women in Exhibitions Network to multiple countries gave me so much energy. Through the Women in Exhibitions Chapters all over the World, the network aims to become accessible to a network of women and reach the community and the challenges in the regional context and borders of own culture and habits.

We are here to serve the needs and challenges women have in the exhibition industry. This is how we introduced the Academy with our different programs, the Mentorship programme, our regular webinars with Exhibition News and our virtual and live events. Particularly, the younger generation in our industry are eager to learn, be advised and helped in the process of career development.

Through our programmes we want to be a helping hand for the next generations of women leaders and make sure we keep them in our industry. As we are organised in regional chapters, our founding partners can easily respond to regional ideas and needs that we can transform in our programs.

I hope you feel inspired to join the community and build on this together with us.

What is our challenge?

Women are already well represented in the exhibition industry and we have only recently witnessed the first generation of female leaders who have risen to the top. These women were pioneers who had to fight to get to the top in what was a very male-dominated space. Now that they have broken the glass ceiling we want to nurture and inspire the next generation of female leaders to be confident and brave, to stand up and be seen and ultimately to mentor and nurture them to become the leaders of tomorrow. Whether it’s WebLive events or individual coaching, our empowerment programmes are designed to unlock people’s potential by providing greater focus and improving overall performance in all areas of work and life.
