Over 400 association executives, staff and members of the hospitality community connected at the Associations North Solutions Conference at Mystic Lake Center on June 13-14. The conference consisted of the Annual Meeting & Expo, a Cornholapalooza (bean bag tournament) and a Golf Classic, and an open-concept trade show.

Drawing on the conference theme, every aspect of the meeting aimed to find solutions for association challenges. A major change and focus included four in-depth workshops to dig deeper and focus on challenges such as “Creating 4D Conference Experiences” with Sarah Michel, CSP, VP Professional Connexity, Velvet Chainsaw Consulting.

For its September 2019 meeting, the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) Philadelphia Chapter—which serves industry professionals in the Greater Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware region—thought it would try something different. Instead of focusing on the visual presentation of food, organizers took away the sense of sight entirely, outfitting diners with a blindfold at dinner.
 

 

From May 1 to July 14, Philadelphians were enthralled by Chinese culture at the 4th annual Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival held in historic Franklin Square. Attendees witnessed 27 lantern displays that were larger than life and made of more than 2,000 lit sculptures and 20,000 LED lights.
