Diane Benson, GE Healthcare, Named President of HCEA
7/17/2014
Diane Benson, CTSM, Americas Exhibits Leader, GE Healthcare, was named President of the Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association (HCEA) for 2014-2015. Benson assumed the role of HCEA President during the 2014 HCEA Annual Meeting in Cleveland, Ohio, June 21-24.

Benson’s more than 25-year career in trade show marketing spans both the exhibitor and supplier sides of this industry. Currently President of HCEA and a member of EXHIBITOR magazine’s Editorial Advisory Board, Diane holds a BS degree in Business Marketing from the University of Phoenix. As one of the earliest CTSM’s in the industry, Diane was awarded her Diamond upgrade in 2012, and is currently one of only seven Diamond-level CTSM’s in the world.

During her acceptance speech at the HCEA Annual Meeting, Benson emphasized the importance of sharing knowledge with one another to ensure the continued success of HCEA as an organization and the industry: “HCEA is a community unlike any other. No one else offers the unique blend of corporate healthcare exhibitors, association meeting planners, and trusted business partners, where we collaborate to share best practices, learn whatever is important to move our businesses forward and learn how to compliantly and consistently deliver strong, successful results to our stakeholders.” Benson continued, “In all my years in this industry, I have received more encouragement, more support, more answers to my questions from HCEA than with any other group of people in my professional career.”

Benson has been involved with HCEA since the late 1980s and has served on the HCEA Board of Directors since 2010. Benson served as HCEA President-Elect during 2013-2014.
