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. Event partners included Lumber Exchange Event Center (which provided the food, drinks and A/V on top of the venue); Haute House Studio (décor and floral); DJ Don/Gen Now; North Mallow (s’mores bar); Time Into Pixels (photo booth); Coppersmith Photography (photos); Claire Ward Illustrations; and Tiffany Rose Goodyear (who scented the event “Waterfall,” with notes of myrrh, vetiver and citrus).

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.
