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.”

For its September 2019 meeting, the National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) Philadelphia Chapter—which serves industry professionals in the Greater Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware region—thought it would try something different. Instead of focusing on the visual presentation of food, organizers took away the sense of sight entirely, outfitting diners with a blindfold at dinner.
 

 

Perhaps your attendees have hopped on those electric bikes and e-scooters that are scattered all over metropolitan areas throughout California. That’s old news, no question. Yet it’s a sure bet they’ve never been on a Vintage Electric Cruz Bike, because only 250 of them ever have been made. Mad Dogs & Englishmen Bike Shop in Carmel has a fleet of these smile generators, as well as a fleet of knowledgeable guides to lead scenic group tours.
