Megan Tanel, AEM senior vice president, exhibitions and events, has announced the promotion of Sara Truesdale Mooney to the position of vice president, exhibitions and business development.

“Sara’s strength in strategic planning has helped move the association forward with its overall new governance structure by sectors, reinvestment of funds into our top services and renewed focus on protecting, growing and further developing our top two exhibition assets: CONEXPO-CON/AGG and ICUEE,” Tanel said.

“Sara will continue in her Show Director role but will also be leading business development opportunities for our exhibition services,” Tanel continued. “Her first opportunity will be around the need for interaction and engagement with CONEXPO-CON/AGG from a 365 perspective. Sara will lead the research and development of this potential new differentiator for AEM in the exhibition industry. As development of this opportunity progresses, additional opportunities or areas of focus will arise that Sara will also review.”
