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."

With summer weather year round, Carmel Valley Ranch is taking full advantage by cultivating a summer camp style environment that’s perfect for everything from corporate meetings to spectacular outdoor weddings.  

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains on California’s Central Coast, Carmel Valley Ranch occupies 500 acres. Amongst all of this, they offer nearly 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, as well as 30,000 square feet of outdoor space.  

 

Lovebirds looking to tie the knot can now experience the pompous features of celebrity Hollywood weddings at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. 

The 7,000 square feet of event space will now include wedding add-ons. Options include exiting in a horse-drawn carriage (inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), a burger bar with the couple's initials toasted into the bun (Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook), and a massive flower wall that will prove to be the “most Instagrammable” backdrop (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). 

 

After two-years of refurbishing, General Mendoza, general manager of Sheraton Pasadena, revealed the completion of the hotel’s multimillion-dollar renovation. The property is excited to offer its reimagined accommodations, meeting space and public areas including its Restaurant Soleil.
