Erica Wilson

Senior Event planner

Erica Wilson

Erica's story is the very definition of eclectic. A Purdue graduate and conference coordinator at the University since 2004, her career in events planning took root with jobs as a theater company creator, bartender, special events coordinator and corporate concierge. From food service and entertainment planning to space management, she has literally done it all. Not surprisingly, Erica wears many hats with Purdue Conferences.

She put her diverse background in the hospitality industry to full use during once of her favorite events, the 2017 National Association of Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) Conference. For that event, Erica arranged for unique, local food, drink and entertainment for an event that drew accolades.
