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.

"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.

 

With the goal of creating an environment that offers compelling education, authentic experiences and intentional connections, ILEA (International Live Events Association) Live 2019 brought planners from around the world in early August 2019 to inspire creativity, network with like-minded people, celebrate the industry and get to know Minneapolis.
