WeConnect, MPI Minnesota Chapter’s one-day annual education conference, was held at Graduate Minneapolis on Feb. 13. Attendees experienced innova- tion across all aspects of the meeting industry, including food and beverage, space and technology. Stephanie Hansen, Kat Perkins, Lee Papa and Justin Cox were a few of the speakers.

Unprecedented times call for strategic measures. With so many planners wondering how best to plan for the event-specific challenges posed by COVID- 19, industry leaders and top associations have stepped up to offer a road map with trainings on everything from cleaning protocols to new contract clauses.

 

"Elektra" opened the 2019-20 Minnesota Opera Season, providing inspiration for the highly anticipated and ultra-chic Minnesota Opera Gala, which transported 290 guests from Ecolab World Headquarters to Athena’s City of Argos. 

 

At first glance, it was a fete like any other. There were sponsors to thank and a bubbly emcee to lead the charge … but not a single attendee in sight. Not in person, anyway.

“Guests” of the Thank You For NOT Coming Tech Dump Gala, the first-ever fundraiser for St. Paul-based electronics recycler Tech Dump, were encouraged to skip the formalwear and small talk. The novel concept was designed to break away from the waste associated with more traditional galas.
