On June 23, the Meeting Professionals International Southern California Chapter (MPISCC) gathered at the Concourse Hotel LAX (soon to be Hyatt Regency LAX) to install its 2016-2017 board. After a lively reception at the newly opened event lawn, an awards dinner was held in the ballroom. The chapter’s theme for the upcoming year is “evolve.” As incoming president Nicole Newman puts it, “Nothing in our industry looks the same today as it did five or 10 years ago. We’re an industry looking toward the future: innovating, adapting, exploring and connecting.”

The smiling faces say it all: it’s great to be together again! In late June, the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority welcomed 18 executive meeting planners from across the country to the destination, marking the first assembly of a new customer advisory board (CAB) focused on meetings, conventions and trade shows.

 

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.
