Exciting times are ahead with Meeting Professionals International’s annual World Education Congress in August.

The event is slated for Aug. 1–Aug. 4., and while that seems ages away, the time is sure to come quickly; summer—as it always does—will fly by.

The event gives attendees a chance to broaden their industry knowledge, network with peers and be exposed to industry opportunities. There are a number of formal and informal face-to-face activities for attendees to learn and meet and greet.

There also are a number of signature events, including an opening night celebration at Pier 48, the RISE Awards Luncheon and the Closing Night Celebration at City Hall. MPI has a number of activities planned, and there will be something for everyone at their national events.

Taking place in San Francisco at the Moscone Center West, registration is at a lower rate until June 18—so it’s time to sign up now.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or an early careerist, WEC give you the knowledge and experience you need to further your career. 

Morrissey Hospitality, a second-generation, family-owned hospitality management company based in St. Paul, added five restaurants to its operations management portfolio. The restaurants include Admiral D’s Waterfront Tavern in White Bear Lake, the Freight House in Stillwater, New Bohemia locations in St. Paul and Plymouth, and Seventh Street Truck Park in St. Paul. Over the past three years, the number of properties Morrissey Hospitality manages has tripled in size. 

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather. 

 

When searching for the perfect meeting space, it doesn’t take long to feel lost in a sea of beige ballrooms. But what about a beige ballroom that overlooks the sea? While Lake Superior isn’t technically an ocean, its size, splendor, and sparkling blue sheen sure make it feel like one, and your guests will appreciate its magic just the same.
