The IAVM Foundation has named a local event professional a member to its 30 Under 30 Class of 2015.

The organization—a nonprofit dedicated to increasing the positive impact and vitality of the public assembly industry—honored Bill Enkhbayar, event manager, Global Spectrum at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall, by placing him on the list, which centers on naming and fostering venue industry professionals in the field of venue management that are under 30 years old.  

As part of the honor, Enkhbayar will receive free registration to VenueConnect—IAVM’s Annual Conference & Trade Show in Baltimore—a travel stipend and a complimentary one-year Young Professional Membership. He will be recognized at the Venue Industry Awards luncheon portion of the conference.

Enkhbayar joined the venue management field in 2011 as a graduate assistant/event manager for Global Spectrum at The Liacouras Center in Philadelphia. After two years, he switched to event manager at the Global Spectrum-managed Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. He worked there for eight months before beginning his current role.

“Bill is one of the smartest, most hard working and eager event managers I have ever worked with, says Fran Rodowicz, general manager, Global Spectrum at Boardwalk Hall. “I’ve been fortunate to see him grow up in the industry since day one, and he’s constantly wanting to learn more about his position, about other departments and everything about the industry.  Always a team player, he’s proving to be a great leader and has a bright future with Global Spectrum.”

Atlantic City

Last year was the highest grossing ever for the United States commercial gaming industry.* Meeting planners who hold gatherings at casinos may just feel like they’ve hit the jackpot, too. Casino-based events provide one-stop convenience—the amenities of convention centers and bountiful hotel rooms, plus activities, dining, and nightlife. 

 

Doreen Guerin grew up an Air Force brat, living in Texas, Louisiana, and later England and France. When she was 13, her parents moved to Queens and, Guerin says, “I’m a New Yorker through and through.” That’s apparent from her accent as well as her dedication to the Javits Center, where, as the senior vice president of sales and marketing, she oversees the booking and event-related operations for more than 170 events each year.
