Alissa McLaughlin
Managing Director                                 

Alissa McLaughlin is known as the red head with the street cred for her excellence in event planning. Having graduated from James Madison University with a B.A. of Communications with a Minor in Computer Information Systems, Alissa returned to her hometown of Philadelphia to start her rise to the top as a meeting planner in Philadelphia for GEP Philly. As she managed over 20 contract staff and executed over 100 events a year, Alissa knew that it was her time to shine. In 2005, Alissa took New York City by storm as she worked with the International Trademark Association, creating innovative sponsorship opportunities for members, negotiating contracts with hotel, floral and transportation vendors, and designing floor plans and layouts for exhibitions. She eventually made her way back to her beloved city to work as the Account Manager for the International Division for Sparks Environment and Exhibition. She was accountable for some of the most challenging Fortune 500 companies, connecting with her clients on-site to oversee company functions. In a matter of 10 years, Alissa McLaughlin has managed to pave her way from coordinating local events to staging huge international exhibitions. All of this led to the creation of Radiant Matter, Alissa’s own pride and joy. With a can-do attitude, easy-going personality, and a touch of wit, you’ll be rest assured that Alissa will cater to all of your event planning needs. In her spare time, Alissa likes to enjoy the city’s lively community and volunteer for local charities.
