Donate to PAMPI's Annual Auction

The Philadelphia Area Chapter Meeting Professionals International is gearing up for its 28th Annual Silent Auction.

The auction, which will take place on Dec. 9 from 5–8:30 p.m. at the Touchdown Club at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, raises money for the organization to help further education and give industry professionals a way to connect. 

Winter Is in the Air

All planners know the importance of looking ahead—the earlier the details fall into place, the less stress one has to deal with as the event nears.

A smattering of event venues have started holding receptions decorated for holiday parties to give planners an idea of what a holiday event would look like there and to have soirees booked far in advance. We know Christmas in July sounds crazy, but it really is a planner’s dream. With all the heat and sunshine, winter feels light-years away.

Satisfying a Sweet Tooth

We recently celebrated National Chocolate Chip Day—quite possibly one of the sweetest days of the year. Dreaming of finding the best chocolate chip cookie around got us thinking about tiny desserts to hand out after events. Anything sweet is sure to put a smile on guests’ face and give them a lasting memory.

Macarons Not only are these the cutest little desserts (the colors are so eye-popping), but they also are the perfect size for stuffing in a gift bag. Guests will be delighted with the delicious, whimsical French treats.
