The Sacramento/Sierra Nevada Chapter of MPI held its annual trade show April 12 at the new Kimpton Sawyer Hotel in downtown Sacramento. The exhibition followed an education luncheon sponsored by the Marin County Convention & Visitors Bureau. It was one of hundreds of events held around the world in observation of Global Meetings Industry Day.

California is one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, but a startling number of residents aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, one in eight Californians struggles with hunger. The situation is especially startling for children; one in five is food insecure.

Hunger is not a supply problem, it’s a logistics challenge. And the meetings and events industry is full of logistics-minded people who are in a position to chip away at it.

 

There’s gold—and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed meeting center—in them thar hills.

 

A new gem in the central coast.
