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. 

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.

 

Microsoft recently produced Solutions5, the seventh annual collaborative conference bringing together five premier food service associations: Association of Correctional Food Service Affiliation, Association for Healthcare Foodservice, Foodservice Consultants Society International, National Association of College Auxiliary Services and the Society for Hospitality & Foodservice Management.
