New Jersey Meeting + Events magazine (now Northeast M+E!) held its second annual readers’ choice awards on Aug. 16, 2017 at MetLife Stadium. The evening began with a networking cocktail hour before the awards ceremony, emceed by Matt Holt of Arena Americas, began. Editor’s Picks were announced by editor Nancy DePalma before the readers’ choice award winners were announced by category.

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
