Our first annual Best of PA Readers’ Choice awards event is rapidly approaching!

This fun and inspiring industry event is our first chance to celebrate the winners in almost every category in the meetings and events industry. Best hotel? Best meeting planning company? Best caterer? Yup, we have those winners and so many more. It’s a great way to network and enjoy a fantastic view…did I mention it’s at Top of the Tower?

Our first Best of NJ event was in late August, and it was spectacular! Attendees told us for weeks how much fun they had. Plus, I did my best matchmaking and connected several vendors who are already working together on various projects.

With all of that in mind, how can you miss it? 

Don’t worry, there’s still time to register. 

Click here to sign up (it’s free!) and then find me at the event to say hello and tell me who you want to meet!

See you on Oct. 6 at Top of the Tower!

Take note of these seven pros who are making their mark in the meetings and events industry.

Lifetime Achievement 

“I was 10 years old when I received my Muscular Dystrophy Carnival Kit in the mail. The box was filled with cool ideas and colorful materials to  support fundraising efforts. I was completely enthralled with the event planning process. … This experience was my jumpstart into events and I was hooked.”

 

Here's who has been crowned the winners and runners-up of the Minnesota Meetings + Events Best of 2020 readers' choice awards. Congratulations!  

Best Brewery/Cidery/Distillery/Winery with Event Space

Retreats and off-site meetings present wonderful opportunities for groups to collaborate, strategize and build relationships away from their normal office environments. With proper planning, these sessions can be highly effective and even pivotal in setting a new direction. However, off-sites may present some unforeseen challenges that can quickly deflate the energy in the room if not anticipated and addressed in advance.
