Connect Faith’s 2018 Memory Makers

By Betty Ann Graham, December 3, 2018

Lauren Moore

Senior Account Director, IMN Solutions 

Lexington, Kentucky

What I do: I work with more than 27 organizations to contract and negotiate more than 77 meetings all over the United States and parts of Europe and Canada. I currently book around 65 faith-based meetings ranging from 25 to 6,000 people.

How I got here: I started working in banquets at the age of 22 and worked my way up to senior sales manager within Hyatt Hotels. Two years ago, I took a position working for an association management company called IMN Solutions.

Greatest career accomplishment: I was named the 2018 MPI Kentucky Bluegrass Chapter Planner of the Year.

What I am working on: I am currently assisting a client in booking one of their large citywide conventions for 2023. Attendance is around 6,000 people, so finding the right city with affordable rates and space is proving to be a challenge.

What I do outside of work: I currently am the co-chair for the MPI MidAmerica Conference and handle all the logistics for future meetings. I am a member of RCMA, IAEE and MPI. In my free time I enjoy watching football (Ohio State and Cincinnati Bengals) and spending time with my family.
