Update on UK Chapter

Last September during AEO Conference, we announced that Oana Cipca and Soraya Gadelrab will be launching the UK Chapter of Women in Exhibitions Network this year.

The vision of the group is to empower women in the industry whilst helping to nurture the next generation of female leaders. To do this, we gathered an inspiring and diverse group of women from the industry to be our founding members. The founding members will help to shape the agenda for the group and help to realise it’s vision and add a lot of value to delivering our goals.

To kick off, we planned to host a meeting of the founding members for us to agree the goals of the Chapter and to start putting together a plan to implement them. We are proud to announce that we have a fantastic and diverse group of women who can really help to drive this initiative forward in UK.

Oana Cipca (MECC Maastricht and Founder of Women in Exhibitions Networks) and Soraya Gadelrab (Fresh Montgomery and Founder of the UK Chapter) said: ‘We know that by the nature of what we do, everyone is incredibly busy so we do appreciate you giving up your time to help to inspire the next generation on women in the industry.”

Our next meeting will take place on 29th November from 10:30 to 12:30 in Central London. The first meeting aims to be a forum for us to decide what we believe the objectives of the group should be and how we think we should address them and also just a great chance for this wonderful group of women to catch up pre-Christmas.
