IACC, the long-standing association that includes 375 small-to-midsized meeting venues worldwide, held its annual conference at the UCLA Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center on April 4-6. Highlights included the Global Copper Skillet, a Culinary Mystery Food & Beverage Tour, and an MPI Meeting Planner Workshop. During the IACC America’s Connect conference, IACC and MPI (Meeting Professionals International) announced that they have formed a fiveyear global partnership to share eventhosting and learning platforms, including education and research initiatives that will be presented at annual conferences, regional events and online. 

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.

 

Unprecedented times call for strategic measures. With so many planners wondering how best to plan for the event-specific challenges posed by COVID- 19, industry leaders and top associations have stepped up to offer a road map with trainings on everything from cleaning protocols to new contract clauses.
