In Southern California, Palm Springs welcomed a monumental achievement of another sort. From Feb. 9 through April 21, the Coachella Valley played host to the second edition of Desert X: 19 site-specific art installations that enlivened the desert landscape. Free and open to the public, the exhibition spanned 50 miles across the California desert and expanded to the south to the Salton Sea and across the border into Mexico. The inaugural Desert X in 2017 attracted more than 200,000 visitors and engaged millions across social and digital media platforms. —Photos by Lance Gerber

The New York and New Jersey chapters of the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE), along with the Banquet Event Strategic Task Force (BEST Task Force), held an in-person gathering in August, their first since the start of the pandemic.

 

The Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE) hosted its first inperson event since the pandemic began at The Medalist Golf Club in Marshall. MSAE’s goal was to host a fun networking opportunity that followed COVID guidelines, and helped members gain confidence attending in-person events again.
