“Let’s give them something to talk about” was the theme when the Southern California Chapter of Meetings Professionals International (MPISCC) gathered at The Beverly Hilton on June 7 of their 2017 Board Installation & Awards Gala. The evening lived up to that message with entertainment by The Amani Experience and Hey Miser DJ, opera singer Kala Maxym, the band STADIUM, and a surprise performance by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. The threecourse dinner was complemented by pairings from Carmel’s award-winning Folktale Winery & Vineyards.

Online voting by only MSAE members whittled the finalists in each category down to the winners.
