40 Under 40: Christina Campbell, ConferenceDirect

By Connect Staff, February 28, 2017

Christina Campbell, 33, works in Woodstock, Georgia, as global account executive at ConferenceDirect. As a 2017 40 Under 40 honoree, Campbell discusses her passion for the events industry.

What I do: I utilize the tools available to me at ConferenceDirect to help companies and organizations source the best venue for their meeting or event. Once a hotel/venue has been selected, I work to ensure the most favorable terms are contracted on their behalf. There is much more to site selection and contract negotiations than what meets the eye, and with contracting verbiage trickier and more confusing than ever, I focus on keeping it as organized and simple as possible.

How I got here: I began my career in the hospitality industry as a sales coordinator straight out of college (Texas A&M). Over the next 10 years I took on various roles in sales, eventually accepting a position as associate director of sales at Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. Looking for a new challenge and direction, I joined the ConferenceDirect Team in December 2015.
