Meeting Professionals International’s annual World Education Congress was held in Minneapolis—which exhibited its “City by Nature” setting—this past August. For three days, attendees networked and learned innovative ways to plan meetings in a mix of formal and fun activities. Guests danced and socialized at Mill City Museum at the opening night celebration, found new resources at Career and Learning Central, mingled with suppliers at MarketSquare, participated in a day of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and enjoyed the outdoors at Peavey Plaza and Orchestra Hall during the closing night party.
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.
