PCMA will be offering networking opportunities and education sessions for professionals at the 2019 EduCon on June 25-28 in Los Angeles. EduCon provides a more focused and practical approach to learning in smaller-scale, collaborative education sessions, allowing more than 800 business events professionals to network and learn more about the industry.

"PCMA is celebrated for programs that are cutting-edge and provocative, delivering what business events strategists need to be successful," says Tonya Almond, PCMA vice president of knowledge and experience design. "At EduCon, each person will be able to tailor programs specifically for their own needs, in the format that best suits their learning style."

EduCon 2019 will be hosting several high-profile business events professionals from association, corporate and health care sectors, including Walmart Inc., National Association of Corporate Directors, and Abbott and Tableau Software Inc.

"EduCon provides focused sessions that help me with my relationships with colleagues, clients and suppliers," says Annette Suriani, CMP, chief marketing strategist for AMS Meetings Solutions. "It offers me the opportunity to engage more actively in the sessions I attend."

Sonesta Silicon Valley has been making some big changes. From significant updates to their communal spaces and guest rooms to a new restaurant opening in late November, the hotel has much to be excited about. So much so that this December, to celebrate the launch of the new Sonesta Event Center, the hotel will be offering a complimentary meeting package for up to 50 people. 

 

Visit Newport Beach released its new marketing campaign highlighting the destination management organization’s dedication to the small meetings market. Debuted at the 2019 IMEX America show, the concept focuses specifically on the planner and the VIP treatment that they can expect from Visit Newport Beach and the city’s hospitality community.

 

This September, Los Angeles Airport Marriott is beginning the final stage of their $50-million renovations.

The hotel will be set to host parties of any nature, including Corporate events, conventions, company retreats, holiday parties, banquets, exhibitions, workshops, and everything in between.
