Alison Hall has been writing about the meetings industry—with a specialty in the financial and insurance market—since 1992. Her articles have been nominated for, or won, awards from American Business Media, Folio Magazine, and the American Society of Business Publication Editors. She holds a BA in English from Colgate University and an MA in Fiction from Boston University. A reluctant tweeter and a passionate copy editor, she is delighted to be writing and editing content for the MeetingsNet magazine app, launched in January 2014. The interactive tablet platform is a brand-new canvas for the MeetingsNet art and editing staff to play with, offering more interesting and interactive ways to bring readers news, features, photos, videos, and more.
