ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Lauralee Shapiro’s career began in restaurant management at Toronto International Airport. This was followed by a transition to sales and operations with a DMC in San Juan, PR. In 1999 she moved into hotel sales, selling for Starwood Hotels in Puerto Rico and Orlando, Melia Hotels in Puerto Rico and IHG in Orlando. Drawing on her knowledge and experience from these years in hotel convention sales, she made the move to becoming a planner. Lauralee first joined ConferenceDirect in 2007, focusing on hotel site selection and contract negotiations. She helps her customers secure contracts that offer great value, meaningful concessions and reduced liability.

She currently lives in Orlando Florida with her two sons, Josh and Jesse.
