PCMA will be offering networking opportunities and education sessions for professionals at the 2019 EduCon on June 25-28 in Los Angeles. EduCon provides a more focused and practical approach to learning in smaller-scale, collaborative education sessions, allowing more than 800 business events professionals to network and learn more about the industry.

"PCMA is celebrated for programs that are cutting-edge and provocative, delivering what business events strategists need to be successful," says Tonya Almond, PCMA vice president of knowledge and experience design. "At EduCon, each person will be able to tailor programs specifically for their own needs, in the format that best suits their learning style."

EduCon 2019 will be hosting several high-profile business events professionals from association, corporate and health care sectors, including Walmart Inc., National Association of Corporate Directors, and Abbott and Tableau Software Inc.

"EduCon provides focused sessions that help me with my relationships with colleagues, clients and suppliers," says Annette Suriani, CMP, chief marketing strategist for AMS Meetings Solutions. "It offers me the opportunity to engage more actively in the sessions I attend."

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
