Another successful MPI SEC has come and gone. Our team had an incredible time putting this Conference together; over 500 planners, suppliers and industry professionals were in attendance. The incredible lineup of speakers included Brad Meltzer, Roger Rickard, Jeff Hurt and a myriad of education session facilitators.
We would like to extend a big thank-you to our Diamond and Double-Diamond sponsors of this year’s SEC, including the Bonaventure Resort & Spa, Creative Staging Services Inc., So Cool Events, Greater Fort Lauderdale CVB, and CORT Event Furnishings. Without your support, this collaborative Conference wouldn’t be as great as it is.
Tom Dippel, SEC 2014 Conference Chair, left us with a few words:
“The 2014 SEC Conference is over! Best SEC ever??? Well, that’s what we are hearing!!
Even before we review the surveys, I know our vision of what the awesomely talented Committee planned for the Conference was a huge success. The education sessions Joanna Berens’ team created. The look and feel of WOW that the teams from Meredith Lasher, Bombshell Productions and Hillary Smith, Koncept Events produced. The incredible results from Cathy Jenkin’s Marketing team and Michele Leyden’s Sponsorship. And, of course, the amazing Thursday night offsite, thanks to the always supportive sponsorship of Christine Tascione, and the GFLCVB. Thanks also go to Francesca Radabaugh’s team at Paragon Events, who managed to pull all aspects of the planning process together, making our Chapter look so good.
You want to talk about a team effort! Over 80 participating sponsors, more than 35 planning volunteers, along with the Bonaventure Resort’s involvement, all combined to produce the many highlights and successes to this multi-faceted all-Florida meeting.”
