About Women in Exhibitions Network, North America Chapter
Women in Exhibitions Network (WIEN) began in Europe by some women who felt that they needed more – as women – than traditional associations were offering. In an industry with over 70% women, WIEN is a club to raise each other up to get to the next executive level, start a new company, or have the support of other working moms who know how challenging our industry can be. We are made up of organizers, suppliers, and venues.
