37, Marketing Manager
Visit Springfield, Springfield, Ill.
What I do: “I make sure the world knows Abraham Lincoln’s hometown is a great place to meet.”
How she got here: Prior to moving to the supplier side, Chenoweth was a corporate meeting planner. “Having been an event producer and planner helps me see how bombarded we all can be by information, and how hard it can be to craft the right message to reach association planners.”
Superstar stats: “Our team has brought in over 20 national-level events between 2015 and 2016. Last year, we welcomed groups like Vietnam Veterans of America and American Association of Meat Processors, and this year we’ll see the DeLorean Convention and Show, as well as International Flying Farmers.”
Next-level idea: Chenoweth has run several [conference] contests asking attendees to find as many Abe Lincolns in Springfield as possible and take photos. Beyond the great social media content, it encourages them to get out and explore the city.
