The Sacramento/Sierra Nevada Chapter of Meeting Professionals International took “Parrothead” as the theme of its annual crab-feed fundraiser held Feb. 1 at the Dante Club in Sacramento. Garratt Wilkin & The Parrotheads, a Jimmy Buffett tribute band, provided musical entertainment, and many guests dressed in appropriately tropical garb. 

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.
