The Minneapolis – St. Paul International Society of Special Events (ISES) knows how to network while having a good time. What more would you expect from a group of event professionals? In the spirit of staying local for their monthly event, ISES members toured the establishments of Northeast Minneapolis for the Summer Saunter on June 18. The group started at Nye’s Polonaise, hopped in the new Brew Ride (a public or private brewery shuttle) to 612 Brew and ended the evening at Ginger Hop.  

MNM+E’s annual readers’ choice awards brought 295 meeting and event professionals to the Lumber Exchange Event Center on April 24 to honor the 2019 award winners and Hall of Famers. Frank Maciel was the event’s emcee. Mall of America was the premier sponsor, and Discover St. Louis Park was the event’s Uber sponsor, giving attendees a credit to the ride-share app.

 

The 2018 Meeting Planners Symposium held at The Graduate Minneapolis and McNamara Alumni Center was all about unique venues and experiences. From a Scrabble team challenge to a mini hackathon, meeting with no walls and a surprise session on a coach bus, this learning opportunity was anything but ordinary. Teams worked together to solve a complex problem and pitch their idea for $500 cash. Through beautiful chaos, attendees discovered fresh, unconventional approaches to do their jobs better.

 

The MPI Minnesota Chapter gathered on June 20 to celebrate the success of its past year at JX Event Venue in Stillwater. The event included a happy hour, Fun Pianos that serenaded guests, elevated food stations, trolley rides and a hidden speakeasy.
