A recently conducted survey by IMEX concluded that wellbeing is a top priority for meeting professionals. IMEX will offer a series of wellbeing initiatives at IMEX America this year to recognize the wellbeing for meeting professionals.

The event will take place Oct. 18–20 in Las Vegas and has several initiatives planned over its course. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, IMEX will host the IMEXrun, a 5K run along the Vegas Strip at dawn. The Be Well Lounge returns, led by trainer Lee Papa and her team. Regular sessions on yoga, mindfulness and mediation are offered as part of the initiative. Garbage Grabbers-Clean Up offers delegates the opportunity to ‘netwalk’ and interact with the local community.

On Monday, Oct. 17, volunteers can join the IMEX staff to participate in Exclusive Destination with 3D Destinations, GES and MeetGreen. This initiative also offers participants a chance to give back and to also netwalk with other meeting professionals.

The Minnesota State Fair is essentially a red carpet event for Minnesotans. That is, if red carpet events include food that is either fried, on a stick, or both. To celebrate the great love that Minnesotans have for their state, Radisson Blu Mall of America is offering state fair-themed meetings.

 

Red Wing has, “a beautiful and quaint small river feel with a lot to do and a lot to see,” says Brittany O’Neill, director of sales and events for Red Wing Golf Course. “Red Wing provides a great change of scenery with something for everyone. Hiking, biking, shopping, dining and, of course, golf!” 

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
