Today’s episode of Meeting Pros features the Atlanta International Special Events Society (ISES). The board is in the studio to talk about what makes the chapter the go-to for the special events community and the people behind the board.
With 15 years in the special events industry Kelly Treadway has seen her career curiously come full circle. Her experiences in sales and marketing led her into the areas of events entertainment, venue management, catering sales and equipment rentals. In early 2013, after a year of ghost writing, concept building and strengthening connections, Kelly took the leap and launched EventCurious – a micro agency specializing in online marketing and public relations for special events and hospitality companies. EventCurious balances a corporate image with grass-roots style efforts as they service clients by being their online listeners. Kelly is currently the President for the International Special Event Society (ISES) Greater Atlanta chapter. She has a natural passion for connecting event profs and the dots that build a stronger industry.
