@MPIGNY - Winter 2014 - (Page 26)

#notes...from the field "Start your meeting with an ice breaker, it will excel open communication and make difficult or new subjects feel approachable." "In Atlanta, apples were everywhere during a recent meeting - in the break food, in the stuffing, in the salads and in the buffet decorations. But it didn't go over the top at this weeklong meeting. This is a great way of integrating local seasonal produce into banquet menus." MPIGNY members share the places they have traveled, conferences and speakers of note, top social media posts and more! "Interesting article from Twitter: @SmartMeetings: U.S. House passes bill 388-1 that would further restrict gov't spending on conferences, travel: http://bit.ly/18KFrJK #DATAAct #SmartNews" "This is a bûche de Noël (yule log) from the pastry chef at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower on display in the lobby honoring a Chicago legendary company and our client - the Wrigley Company." "A destination that should be on your radar: Reykjavik, Iceland. Summer might be the best time for this spot with its endless hours of daylight, although with the Northern Lights and glacier adventures, it might be worth the trip in winter if you can stand the cold temps. Iceland offers a unique authentic experience for your attendees. Travel time is short from the East Coast, the landscape is beautiful, people are friendly and there is plenty to keep you busy. If you venture to Iceland, be sure to connect with Eggert Olason from Iceland Congress and be assured that your program and attendees will be in expert hands."
