Oana Cipca is Business Development Manager Exhibitions at MECC Maastricht and responsible for the international guest events of the company.
Oana is also the initiator and founder of the Women in Exhibitions Network officially launched in 2018 with the aim of supporting the continued professional development of women working in exhibitions and providing opportunities for them to meet and network.
As a newcomer in the industry some years ago, she realised at industry meetings how many men were represented on stage, and she wondered at the time where all the powerful women were,” she explains. “Our industry is one with men at the top.”
She hopes to use this platform to make our industry discover us women, and at the same time create the right environment for women to shift in their attitudes and behaviour, and to support them to grow.
