MPI Greater New York held its 32nd Annual Auction & Mixology Madness on Nov. 7, 2017. The event was held at the PlayStation Theater in Times Square. Despite the downpour, crowds came out to sip and sample from seven vendors competing for the best cocktail as well as bid on a wide variety of silent auction items ranging from gift baskets to hotel stays. Northeast Meetings + Events was a competitor and featured a cocktail blending apple cider, vodka and Fireball for a fiery kick. 

PCMA’s flagship event, Convening Leaders, brought industry professionals from 36 countries to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 6-9 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. “We built this conference around the theme Disrupt + Deliver because that’s what the industry needs and wants,’’ says PCMA President and CEO Sherriff Karamat. “We leave here with a greater commitment and better understanding of how business events can and must drive economic and social progress.’’

 

Sixty-two guests gathered for the Northeast M+E Best of 2018 readers’ choice awards on Aug. 16 at Upstairs at The Pennsy in New York City. The event’s presenting sponsor was Kalahari Resorts & Conventions; the bar sponsor was Bear Creek Mountain Resort & Conference Center; and the “green” carpet sponsor was Topgolf. Event partners included Acute Inflections, Jamie Rosler from ComedySportz, Drawing Booth, Eclipse Events, Flowerful Events, Pat LaFrieda, The Pennsy Food Hall, Sabi Sushi and Wizard Studios
