Megan Smith

Account Manager, Sourcing

The amiable virtuoso.

It’s no wonder Megan is passionate about events on every level–she has been immersed in the hospitality industry since an early age! Growing up, her family owned and operated a 20-unit resort on Table Rock Lake in Missouri. Megan went on to pursue her degree in the industry and graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Applied Sciences in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

Before joining NHS Global Events, Megan honed her meetings and events skills at the Hyatt Centric Chicago Magnificent Mile. Beginning in the spring of 2015, Megan worked her way up the ladder from Event Planning Coordinator to Event Planning Manager, all the while earning recognition as Team Member of the Month twice and being an active member of the C.A.R.E. Committee.

Outgoing and gregarious, Megan is passionate about working as part of a team and building lasting relationships. Her fun-loving personality and great sense of humor set her apart from the crowd. She excels at innovation and creativity, and is always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need.

In her spare time, Megan loves to be with her family and friends, try new restaurants, and work on her goal of traveling the world!

What’s your favorite past-time?

I spend most of my free time with my family and friends. I love to explore Chicago’s endless dining and entertainment options. When I have the time I love to travel and experience new cities.

Do you have a pet? Name and what they are.

Yes, a family dog. His name is Rocky, he’s an Australian Shepherd / Bassett Hound mix and he’s still a crazy puppy!

Favorite city?

Florence, Italy. I visited a few years ago while my sister was studying abroad. I loved the history and culture, as well as the food, of course!

If you were to star in a TV show, which one?

If I could choose any TV show to be a part of, it would be Dancing with the Stars. I love to dance and DWTS is just pure entertainment.

Why you love working in the events industry.

I love helping to execute people’s vision and take the stress out of the experience for them.
