40 Under 40: Jamie Blick

By Connect Staff, May 4, 2017

Jamie Blick, 35, works in Pittsburgh as marketing and conference administrator at Association for Iron & Steel Technology. As a 2017 40 Under 40 honoree, Blick discusses her passion for the events industry.

What I do: I am responsible for planning three midsize meetings a year and manage registration for our annual conference and exposition, which attracts over 8,000 attendees each year. I also am involved in the marketing efforts and social media branding for our organization.

How I got here: I began my career working at a fundraising not-for-profit. I started working at AIST as a conference planner in January 2005. I eventually got involved with marketing in addition to meeting planning and have fallen in love with both aspects of my job.

My greatest career accomplishment: I’ve reduced food and beverage spend for our association by cutting back on bottled water and soda served during continental breakfasts and breaks, and paying for things on consumption for afternoon breaks and bar packages rather than ordering preset packages. I also have improved and expanded our digital marketing efforts and was deeply involved in the website overhaul of AIST.org a few years ago.
