Meeting Professionals International (MPI), the largest meeting and event industry association worldwide, announced a partnership with International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), an association dedicated to advancing the careers of administrative professionals.

“As more administrative professionals are tasked with meeting and event planning, MPI is thrilled to be able to provide training and best practices to the members of International Association of Administrative Professionals,” says Meaghan Ferrazza, the director of strategic alliances at MPI.

Through this new partnership, IAAP will offer a meeting and event planning certificate at its annual CAPstone Conference for their attendees starting in 2019. MPI and IAAP will also share content throughout their channels. To find out more about MPI visit mpi.org and to learn more about IAAP visit iaap-hq.org.
 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

 

Since its $384.1 million river improvement project in 2013, San Antonio has revitalized 13 miles of the San Antonio River by reintroducing native vegetation to improve the area's natural ecosystem.

 

Development plans also call for a resort, golf courses and a convention center.
