The Portland Chapter of International Live Events Association (ILEA) held its ever-popular Art of the Party tabletop competition at Vibrant Table Catering & Events on May 24. The fierce but friendly competition didn’t disappoint, showcasing designs ranging from grand elegance to colorful whimsy. 

The International Live Events Association (ILEA) Dallas Chapter spread some holiday cheer at its annual Holiday Giveback. The organization chose to work with Senior Source and the Diversicare facility. Members of the group held a party for the facility complete with caroling, live music, holiday crafts and bingo—and of course plenty of cookies and punch. The group also collected items for Diversicare’s wish list, along with a $5 donation from each member who registered for the networking happy hour that followed the party.

 

The commoditization of the live events industry causes concern and prompts discussion.
