HELLO I'M SABRINA MEYERS!

With over 16 years of experience in the event management and hospitality sales industry, I continue to build my expertise and thought leadership within the space of social media and events.
An early adopter, a risk taker, experimental by nature and a natural born creative, I am passionate about social media and work with brands and businesses on social media strategy and marketing to optimise and maximise their online visibility for their events, community and brand awareness.
As one of the industry's first Vlogger's, I founded my brand Hot Hospitality Exchange in 2017 as a space where I create online content from the perspective of an event planner for event professionals across Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
