We are always proud to have our tribe members acknowledged in the Event Tech Industry:
Kelly Heesterman, Community & Marketing Manager and Sureena Parmar, Director of Client & Strategic Relations of Meetingmax have been featured in this months blog at www.womenineventtech.org
WomenInEventTech is a community that believes there are more opportunities for women to lead in this industry than what is currently being seen.
'Whether that's starting event tech companies, programming event tech innovations, designing breathtaking event installations - we don't care. Whatever the tech, wherever the event, whoever the woman - we're getting behind you to share stories, meet up, inspire and connect. '

Sureena’s passion for people took her to some of the most beautiful locations in BC as she ventured down the path of working at the top hotel brands in Canada - the prestigious Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria Harbour, the rustic Wickaninnish Inn on Chesterman Beach in Tofino, and the tallest building in Vancouver, the Shangri-La Hotel. She spent most of her time with her hotel guests ensuring they had the most optimal experience in the city and was fortunate enough to be in the presence of many world-renowned individuals from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Queen Elizabeth II and Muhammad Ali just to name drop a bit.
She found her path to Meetingmax after learning of the office culture and slipper policy. There was no turning back once she heard she could work in slippers instead of high heels. Sureena has been working with various Convention & Visitor Bureaus (CVBs) and PCOs across North America to help them successfully launch their events in Meetingmax.
Kelly Heesterman is the Community & Marketing Manager at Meetingmax where she brings to life the brand promise of Awesome Reservation Technology powered by Ridiculously Remarkable Support.
She thrives on creating communities by bringing people together who are passionate about the same product or experience and creating an environment for growth through collaboration. Kelly graduated with honours in Marketing Communications from the British Columbia Institute of Technology.
Outside of Meetingmax, you can find her hiking in the mountains, relaxing at hot yoga, or learning more about holistic health.
