The Education Institute and Silent Auction are back this year for a night of learning and bidding.

Both events will take place on March 18. The Education Institute is a half-day opportunity for meeting and hospitality professionals to gather at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and take part in a presentation by Janine Driver, a communications expert who has worked with the CIA, FBI and ATF. Driver will give attendees tips on various communication techniques. Afterwards, guests will be able to attend workshops on a number of industry-related topics throughout the afternoon. Registration starts at 11:30 a.m., with the program beginning at noon. Lunch will be served during the presentation.

Immediately following the program will be Philadelphia Area Chapter Meetings Professionals International’s 27th Silent Auction, sponsored by Kalahari Resorts & Conventions. Participants will be able to bid on travel opportunities, dining venues and retail merchandise.  

Those who register for the Education Institute will automatically be admitted to the Silent Auction. Both events are available to the public. For registration and silent auction donation opportunities, head to pampi.org.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
