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.
The Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau revealed it will support Meeting Professionals International’s Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate course, working as the title sponsor of the program for one year.
Accredited by Saint Louis University, the program, provides participants with vital information on compliance regulations, laws and techniques for managing healthcare meetings.

The updated contract will extend the partnership between Smart City and the venue for another seven years with three one-year extension options. The renewal follows a competitive request for a proposal (RFP) phase.
