It’s time to open those wallets and start bidding.

The Philadelphia Area Chapter of Meetings Professionals International is hosting an auction with such donated items as vacation packages, celebrity autographs and catered dinners.

The deadline to register is just two days away on Dec. 9. Registering gets you many award-winning noms and two drink tickets.

PAMPI is encouraging all attendees to register their credit card online before the event. If you do so, you can get in on the auction action early and bid on items such as a $500 American Airline gift to fly fror a two-night stay at Mirage or MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

You won’t want to miss out on this fun-filled evening; register now! 

It’s always good to have market data for a glimpse at what’s happening in the meetings and events industry and know there are credentials for professionals to work toward. The Events Industry Council (EIC) has released its 2022 Q1 Global Business Events Barometer earlier this week and announced its inaugural class of CMP Fellows this spring.

 

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.
