To be the industry leader in opportunity for all
We are an organization that embraces creativity, diversity, and inclusion for our employees, our customers, and our business partners.
We at Clarion Events Inc. believe that diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are fundamental to making us a successful and vibrant organization. What we aim to do is to put inclusion and belonging at the heart of everything we do. We have made strides (and continue to make strides) to attract, develop, and retain a diverse workforce that reflects the diverse communities and markets we serve. In the end, a supportive environment for our employees where everyone is treated equitably and with respect is our goal. We have zero-tolerance for discrimination of any kind whether it pertains to our employees or our customers - events are for all, and we intended to make sure of that with our DEIB initiatives & programming.
At our shows
At Clarion Events Inc. we do not just want to talk about diversity, but be an active participant in the change that comes from putting forth diverse programs. At all of our shows, we host a variety of different programing around the ideas of diversity, equity, & inclusion, and how those concepts bring about positive change in our customer markets. Most recently we have had:
- HYDROVISION International - Women with Hydro Vision Awards
- FDIC International - Another Seat at the Table: Diversity and Inclusion
- Coffee Fest New York - The Daniel Lee Giving Tree Award
- Airport News Conference - You’ve Launched a Diversity Equity & Inclusion Initiative, Now What?

As we continue to grow, we look to add even more diverse programming that highlights the contributions and successes our customers from marginalized communities have had, and how those successes translate into a better industry for everyone.
