Liz Mazzei


Liz Mazzei is the Director of Partner Solutions at Pogby. Frustrated by the lack of a platform in the Meetings and Events Industry to showcase innovative technology and online resources for event planners, Liz collaborated with key folks in the industry to create PlannerTech - a community and forum that highlights the great technologies available for event professionals. At Pogby, Liz oversees the Sales & Marketing Program and is an integral part in developing business relationships with partners. She has a passion for technology and the internet as a resource to help make people's lives more efficient through education, networking, and as a tool to get things done.
