ILEA New Jersey North Chapter and NACE New Jersey Chapter held a joint holiday event on Dec. 7, 2015. The event was held at FormSet in Bergen and had a Holidays Around the World theme with networking, cocktails and international cuisine.

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.

 

The commoditization of the live events industry causes concern and prompts discussion.
