In this episode of the ‘Where People Meet’ podcast, we are joined by Pilar Vigil, Manager of Trade Shows and Conferences at Alkermes in Boston, with over 20 years of experience in trade projects and logistical management for planning trade shows, conferences, meetings and corporate events in the US, Europe and Asia. Pilar has an incredibly impressive resume in the events industry through her experience at FICO, Amgen, American Express Meetings, and her latest role at Alkermes.
Needless to say, we were incredibly lucky to have Pilar sit down to answer a few questions about her background in the meetings and events industry, her key to success, how she plans events that are meaningful to everyone (i.e. attendees, investors, partners, exhibitors/sponsors, company employees, etc.), and more importantly, how to humanize the event experience for different stakeholders involved. As always, we close out the episode by asking Pilar to provide our listeners with some actionable tips and tricks that they can apply to their own event strategies.
