Featuring the theme “Get in the Meetings Game,” the MPI Oregon and Washington chapters’ 2015 Cascadia Educational Conference was hosted by Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound, Washington, this past March, and Northwest Meetings + Events was a sponsor. The conference had 230 registered attendees and included post-meeting gatherings such as the Homecoming Reception. 

This past May, the Emerging Sales Professionals Association (ESPA)—a Washington state nonprofit corporation that provides professional development training for sales staff from publicly owned convention and meeting venues—held its sixth Emerging Sales Professionals Symposium, ESP6, at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, Washington. ESPA members include sales professionals at all levels from convention and meeting venues in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. The association organizes educational programs each fall and spring.

 

Northwest Meetings + Events was proud to sponsor the 2017 Cascadia Educational Conference this year. The event took place at Wildhorse Resort & Casino in Pendleton, Oregon, and drew approximately 220 industry leaders. The popular conference brought together members of the Meeting Professionals International chapters of Oregon, Washington state and British Columbia, and featured locally inspired experiences like a hoe-down themed gala and an opening prayer by members of the Confederated Tribes of Umatilla.
