AOL's Rachel Gross Named Top Event Innovator

BizBash, leading trade media group for the events industry, just unveiled its second annual list of the 66 most innovative people in the business, and AOL's Rachel Gross made the list.

Rachel, who heads Corporate Events & Community Relations on the Brand, Marketing and Communications team, shares the honor with other event planners and designers described by BizBash as those "who stay ahead of the curve and move the industry forward" as "the drivers behind groundbreaking, purpose-driven concepts that shape the way we think about events today."

She was selected to be on the cover of the March/April issue of BizBash magazine, which publishes this week, along with eight other event innovators and Rachel is also featured in a video on the BizBash site talking about her pledge to make AOL's events green and sustainable, while still engaging guests.

A long-time AOLer, Rachel and her team manage AOL's strategic presence at several hundred events a year such as the Consumer Electronics Show, Advertising Week, Huffington Post Game Changers and other trade shows as well as internal events. The team is also responsible for AOL's community relations efforts, which include AOL's partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
