The 37th edition of the IACC Americas Connect conference took place on April 16-18 at Chubb Hotel & Conference Center and The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. The three-day conference, hosted by former White House Director of Events Laura Schwartz, included educational sessions, panel discussions in the form of campfires, workshops, culinary tours and tastings, as well as the annual Global Copper Skillet competition. 

After a nationwide search, the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) has named Sheila Alexander-Reid the executive director of PHL Diversity. A business development division of the PHLCVB, PHL Diversity was created in 1987 and was the first multicultural division of a convention and visitors bureau in the country.
