Back by popular demand, Discover St. Louis Park sponsored puppies from Secondhand Hounds, which greeted guests at registration. Mall of America and Bloomington CVB were the Gift Bag Sponsors, Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge was the Valet Sponsor and Roseville Visitors Association was the Entertainment Sponsor. Northstar, a variety band from Élan Artists, provided live music, and a s’more station featured decadent dessert with gourmet marshmallows from North Mallow. Other event partners included 612Brew, AV For You, The Bird, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel St. Paul Downtown, Event Lab, Fabulous Catering, Girl Friday, metroConnections and Time into Pixels.

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.
