This past May, the Emerging Sales Professionals Association (ESPA)—a Washington state nonprofit corporation that provides professional development training for sales staff from publicly owned convention and meeting venues—held its sixth Emerging Sales Professionals Symposium, ESP6, at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington. ESPA members include sales professionals at all levels from convention and meeting venues in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. The association organizes educational programs each fall and spring. For more information, contact Michael McQuade with the Washington State Convention Center at michael.mcquade@wscc.com.

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.
