At Hilton Minneapolis this past November, the NACE Minneapolis/ St. Paul Chapter held its educational conference entitled Minnesota Made: Midwest Moments of Wow. The aesthetic featured plenty of plaid, as the theme was “luxury lumberjack.”

The day focused on three words as its mission: education, experience and enjoy. Keynote speaker David Caruso of Dynamic Events shared innovative tools and ideas with the audience, and breakout sessions were plentiful, including Ethnic Catering + Your Venue = A Happy Client with Anna Senrick, Common Food Allergies: Offering Safe Options with Cassie Weness, RD, LD, and more. twincitiesnace.net

The meetings and events industry doesn’t have an industry-wide ethical code, leaving planners to rely on their own personal code.
