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.

MNM+E’s annual readers’ choice awards brought 295 meeting and event professionals to the Lumber Exchange Event Center on April 24 to honor the 2019 award winners and Hall of Famers. Frank Maciel was the event’s emcee. Mall of America was the premier sponsor, and Discover St. Louis Park was the event’s Uber sponsor, giving attendees a credit to the ride-share app.

 

ILEA Seattle held its annual Emerald City Applause Awards on March 28 at the Arctic Club Seattle. Congratulations to this year’s winners:
