Speakers: Katie Grandel, Director of Conferences, American Lighting Association
Katie Grandel: Hi my name is Katie Grandal and I am the Director of Conferences for ALA.
What is special about the conference this year?
Katie Grandel: I don't think that we could ask for a more perfect location for the 2023 conference in Lake Tahoe. Not only is there so much to do in Lake Tahoe, but also the surrounding area, so many fun outdoor activities.
How has the conference helped you build relationships with people in the industry?
Katie Grandel: I think we can all agree that we enjoy the convenience of zoom meetings, but nothing beats getting together with your industry as a whole and enjoying that time together with your peers.
Tell us a story from a previous conference.
Katie Grandel: I loved being able to see everyone at the Austin opening reception. I think the venue was so fun and allowed people to relax, have a good time, and those who rode the bull just absolutely made the entire event.
Katie Grandel: I'm going. Are you?
