Angela Alea, President & CSO of LASSO, was recently celebrated by WIET as a leader in the event technology space.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., December 5, 2018 – LASSO, a leading provider of event workforce management technology solutions, is proud to announce that Angela Alea, LASSO’s president & cso, was recently featured by #WomenInEventTech as a leader in the event technology space and role model for other aspiring women innovators.
WIET is a community of people that believe that there are more opportunities for women to lead in event tech than we see currently. Whatever the tech, whatever the event, whoever the woman, the goal of #WomenInEventTech is to get behind women, share their stores, meet up, inspire others, and connect.
“Women have a unique opportunity in this industry to shake things up a bit, provide a different perspective, and to stand out,” said Angela Alea, president & cso of LASSO. “Being different is a strength, so it’s important for women to look for opportunities to think differently – that is what sparks innovation! And, we can all learn something from each other. The lack of role models is a barrier to success for many, but this industry is hungry for some strong women to step up and lead. This is one of the main reasons we started our first annual “top women in event production” awards this year in order to highlight some of the role models in this space that should be recognized for how they’ve stepped up to lead and inspire other women to do the same.”

“The events industry is ripe for disruption! I love the potential for growth and innovation that exists in event tech,” continued Alea. “There is so much potential with so few tools available. The professionals in events continue to WOW us each year with more creativity, more engagement, and impressive execution despite not having many tools at their disposal. Imagine what could happen if innovation met creativity? It will be exciting to look back even 5 years from now and see how the industry has leveraged technology to create and do more.”
