Bostrom is pleased to announce recent promotions, certifications and additions to the expanding Association Meetings & Expo event planning team. Julie Elfand, CMP, has been promoted to Senior Director of Meetings & Expositions. Julie has been with Bostrom for almost 23 years working with global trade and professional association clients. She has launched industry trade shows from the ground up and consistently delivered meeting experiences that contributed greatly to each association’s mission impact and growth.
Julie is responsible for leading the meetings team in contract negotiations, risk management and disaster planning, and strengthening Bostrom’s global partnerships with hotels, CVBs, and PCOs. These key areas result in enhanced attendee experiences, meeting innovation and data-driven agility delivering unparalleled customer service to our clients.
Bostrom welcomes Juana Anderson as the Director of Meetings & Expositions and Ashley Foster, CMP, as the Meeting Associate. We are also proud to congratulate Colleen Miglio, Meeting Manager, on recently achieving her Certified Meeting Planner (CMP) credential. The team is continuing to grow due to the recent launch of the Greeting Card Association’s Noted Expo (notedexpo.org) and the increase in meetings management outsourcing business.
“We are so proud of the work led by Julie on the meetings team,” said Bostrom president Randy Lindner, CAE, MHSA. “Their efforts have resulted in growth and new opportunities for our clients and amazing experiences for their members.”
