Speaker: Lindsay Burch, Director of Marketing & Client Engagement

The Edison Awards

Topic: Intro to the Edison Awards

Lindsay Burch joined the Edison Awards in February of 2022 as the Director of Marketing & Client Engagement. Prior to working with the Edison Awards, Lindsay was the Director of Conferences at Gartner, where she led a global team of 14 to increase conference attendance, driving $27.5 million in sales to their 70+ annual events. Before moving to SWFL, Lindsay worked in Sales and Marketing for IHG, helping underperforming hotels build their sales and revenue management strategies. She earned her degree in Business and Marketing from Michigan State University in 2000 and has been doing everything in her power to avoid returning to the frigid north ever since. She has two sassy daughters (8 and 16), an Australian Shepherd who thinks she’s a lap dog, and a fiancé who still opens her car doors to help keep her life balanced.
