#notes...from the field MPIGNY members share the places they have traveled, conferences and speakers of note, top social media posts and more! I just came back from a FAM trip to Abu Dhabi, and my clients and I cleared Customs in Abu Dhabi! We landed at a domestic terminal at JFK and skipped Customs clearance. Guests flying to select destinations in the U.S. will have access to Abu Dhabi International Airport's United States Preclearance facility located at Terminal 3. The new facility enables guests flying Etihad Airways and others to preclear the U.S. Customs and Border Protection formalities before boarding their flights in Abu Dhabi. Upon arrival in the U.S., guests will be treated as though they are domestic arrivals. Check out www.etihad.com/uspreclearance for info! Next time you are in Las Vegas check out The Chelsea - a new versatile and functional event space at The Cosmopolitan! Looking for a unique venue in San Diego? Go to Baliwick on Fifth or to The Red Door on Washington - unique, fun and exciting! Got to visit the Desert Botanical Gardens in Arizona and was lucky enough to catch the Chihuly Exhibit - if you get the chance to see his work in person you must! Check out this Buckeye inspired treat from the Culinary Team at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus Ohio. Re-purposed shutters creating exterior of entertainment venue - Bali, Indonesia. Where in the POOL has your @MPIGNY magazine been? At the Buttes at the Marriott Tempe! Chelsea Clinton at amFAR gala. A floral display in Singapore airport.
