The Midwest Society of Association Executives (MSAE) celebrated the holidays in Western style with its themed Holiday Hoedown on Dec. 4, 2015 at the Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Center. A silent auction, Wall of Wine benefiting MSAE’s charity of the year, Matter, a Heads or Tails game for cash, holiday photos, and themed food and drinks had guests in good spirits. To make the night even better, Roger Radley made sure the group was in stitches during his comedy set.

On March 6, nearly 200 meeting planners, event producers, experiential design experts and vendor partners gathered at Loyola University Chicago’s Damen Student Center to talk cutting edge tech trends, explore new educational topics and connect with friends old and new.

 

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.
