Influencers are personal, make waves, can have nothing to do with the meetings industry or everything to do with it, according to participants in this week’s #eventtable Twitter chat, “Meeting/Event Industry Influencers: Who Are They, Really?”
The topic was sparked by an article in Successful Meetings that listed 12 men, 1 bug and 0 women as top influencers in the meetings/events industry.
In the week preceding the chat, several blog posts were written in response spurring more discussion on Twitter, Facebook and in blog comments. The high percentage of women in the industry and the lack of representation on a major industry publication’s list of influencers was a major point of contention.
