First meeting in Maastricht

The recently introduced 'Women in Exhibitions Network' had its first meeting during art fair TEFAF Maastricht in MECC Maastricht. Women from five different countries who all work in the exhibitions industry joined Oana Cipca of MECC Maastricht, who initiated the Women in Exhibitions Network. The aim is to enlarge the visibility of the impact that women bring to the industry and to give them a voice. The network focuses on the personal development of women in the exhibitions industry. Manon van de Beuken, head of Fair Operations TEFAF, Mariska Dreschler and Annette Bos, from RAI Amsterdam, and international empowerment speaker Lucinda Douglas gave inspiring presentations. Initiator Oana Cipca: "I am very pleased with the many enthusiastic responses to our first meeting and I hope that we have made a start with a network where women working in the exhibitions industry can meet, learn from, inspire and strengthen each other. Looking forward to our next get together in Verona in May." The focus of the Women in Exhibitions Network includes educational and leadership programmes, best practice- stories, knowledge sharing and easy access to a professional international network forhelping one another. Topics will include future market trends, examples of successful women, challenges women face in the workplace, issues facing female leaders, inspirational stories and insights into what is happening in our markets.
