    Transparency & Technology in the Events Industry

    Technology has created a whole new level of transparency in the event business world.  From the debate on whether or not to publish pricing on your company website, to the concern over "How to DIY" videos leading brides and grooms to believe they can tackle the whole thing themselves....there's certainly mixed feelings when it comes to the level of visibility technology can provide.  However, with all of these perceived obstacles comes opportunity.  Join Karen Gordon, VP of Growth at Goodshuffle, as she walks through how transparency and technology can be used to the business owners advantage, provide new opportunities to win clients, and even allow the true industry leaders to stand clearly above their competition.

    Karen Gordon has spent her career growing companies in the fields of events and technology.  She began her career in software sales, but left to join the events industry.  She worked first as event planner, then as an experience designer and account executive, inventing top-selling experiences for live events divison of LivingSocial.  After growing their DC live events venue "918 F Street" from conception, Karen moved back into the world of technology, working for companies such as Surprise Ride (as seen on Shark Tank) and cove, both of which blend technology with real-life experiences.  Now, as the VP of Growth at Goodshuffle, she combines her love of the creativity and complex logistics involved in events with her software sales savvy.  She's the NACE National Business Development Committee Chair for 2019 and a member of the DC and Baltimore area chapters.
