IACC, the long-standing association that includes 375 small-to-midsized meeting venues worldwide, held its annual conference at the UCLA Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center on April 4-6. Highlights included the Global Copper Skillet, a Culinary Mystery Food & Beverage Tour, and an MPI Meeting Planner Workshop. During the IACC America’s Connect conference, IACC and MPI (Meeting Professionals International) announced that they have formed a fiveyear global partnership to share eventhosting and learning platforms, including education and research initiatives that will be presented at annual conferences, regional events and online.
