Meet Venue Industry Expert, Emma Schenkenberger

Emma Schenkenberger

How long have you worked in the industry?
Almost 12 years in performing arts and 7 years in venue management.

What are you most excited or passionate about? What are the goals you most want to accomplish in your work?
I get a tremendous amount of joy from working with venue managers to update and improve their processes using technology. My goal when working with clients is always to make their lives easier so they can spend more time doing things they love. As a recovering venue manager, I want to make a difference in the industry by positively impacting the workforce.

I want to understand how and why you ended up working in the events industry. What were you doing before you came here? What attracted you to work in this business?
I was a theatre kid who originally set out to make arts organizations more sustainable. When I discovered event and venue management, I realized I could have a larger impact working in Performing Arts Centers.

Tell me a bit about what you like most about working for Ungerboeck?
I love how passionate and smart the people I get to work with everyday are. I am always learning from my colleagues.

When you think of the future of the events industry, what do you think will be the “next thing(s)” we are all talking about? What should we be concerned or worried about?
Standardization and innovation are going to be crucial for the long-term health and success of public assembly venues. I believe this needs to start from data-driven research about the industry. I look forward to helping venues in all sectors improve their processes and reporting so we can continue to better our organizations and successfully operate and serve the people our buildings were built to host and entertain.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I’m legally blind in one eye!
