Thursday October 29, MiH, ISAE, MPI and our fellow participants in hospitality got together online and in person for a successful event that covered how to plan live events during the pandemic. This was an amazing event regardless of how it was attended.
The Horizon Center in Muncie, IN was a great host for the in-person side of the event and featured all necessary socially responsible protocols from masks, socially distanced seating to no-contact, bar and networking.
The in person event was executed perfectly. To coincide with the panel that discussed how to properly conduct a meeting post a pandemic.
The educational portion of the event featured an expert panel that included:
Carol McCormack, Senior National Account Manager with Maritz Global Events
Jody Clevenger, Director of Operations with Horizon Convention Center
Barbara F. Dunn, Partner at Barnes & Thornburg, LLP; Immediate Past President, Academy of Hospitality Industry Attorneys; President (2017-2019); Board Member (2013-present)
Dr. Virginia Caine, Marion County Public Health Department
We were able to coincide the live event with a full zoom online experience showing how an event can have a dual theme. Attendees were able to participate in a question/answer session with our panelist and a fun social media trivia game.
Getting back to business was definitely a great night of fun and creating events to connect people!
