David Mathew DiPuma, CMP
37, President and Owner
The Defining Point
What he really does:
DiPuma runs an experiential event marketing agency providing content development, AV production, full-service event and meeting planning, and video and graphic design services.
How I got here:
“I interned at a health company that sold the division I was in, and my job was to end within two months. A staffer presented me with an opportunity in the meetings and conventions department, and after six months of working in the industry, I was sold. I was a corporate planner for five years, and our team planned more than 300 meetings and events, as well as more than 90 trade shows.”
He’s been highly involved in an incentives industry association for eight years and was chapter president in 2015. Last year, he started a young leaders group that now has five members, a mentor program and a road map to future development of others.
