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.

Minneapolis was selected as the location for the first-ever VeeCon, being billed as a “super un-conference.” On tap is a lineup of keynote speakers, educational talks, panels, Q&A sessions, collaborative experiences and A-list entertainment for an audience of 10,255 VeeFriends token holders. It’s the first event of its kind that will be using NFT technology to provide access, build community and deliver experiences.
