On June 23, the Meeting Professionals International Southern California Chapter (MPISCC) gathered at the Concourse Hotel LAX (soon to be Hyatt Regency LAX) to install its 2016-2017 board. After a lively reception at the newly opened event lawn, an awards dinner was held in the ballroom. The chapter’s theme for the upcoming year is “evolve.” As incoming president Nicole Newman puts it, “Nothing in our industry looks the same today as it did five or 10 years ago. We’re an industry looking toward the future: innovating, adapting, exploring and connecting.”

It was one of hundreds of events held around the world in observation of Global Meetings Industry Day.
