THE Upcoming Events That Matter Hotel Operations Technology Conference March 14-16 Sydney, Australia Co-located with the Hotel Hospitality + Design event, HOT explores hot-button issues such as wireless Internet (is it the answer to all guest Internet needs?) cloud computing (does it deliver over traditional premise-based computing?), engaging guests with mobile apps and balancing energy efficiency and comfort in hospitality. IACC-Americas 30th Annual Conference March 23-25 Leesburg, Virginia IACC promises “an adrenaline rush of motivation, education, networking and good times.” The conference helps attendees absorb the info needed to fill their facilities and provide the best meeting environments in the world. The 8th Annual Copper Skillet Competition will once again feature the best chefs going head-to-head. Agenda Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show Leipzig Book Fair March 17-20 Leipzig, Germany “In a nutshell, the aim of the Leipzig Book Fair is to drum up more publicity for books.” Indeed. Themes of the fair include promoting reading among youth, audio books and comics (also covering manga, anime, role-playing and fantasy, it’s one of the leading events of its kind anywhere in Europe). Reality Rocks Expo Los Angeles, California April 9-10 “The ultimate reality TV fan experience” kind of speaks for itself. Reality TV “stars” in attendance represent shows such as The Hills, The Real World (that’s still on?), Top Chef, The Amazing Race and The Bachelorette. Sneak peeks at new shows and workshops on how to audition for reality shows and how to pitch your own program? Nice. March 8-9 Las Vegas, Nevada Session topics include how a cocktail culture develops, draft beer and something ripped straight from the meeting industry’s headlines: navigating political and commercial roadblocks on the path to economic recovery. But one convention topic is sure to send a chill down your spine: preventing prohibition. Gulp. The International Congress of Esthetics and Spa March 13-14 Arlington, Texas Sessions include You ARE What You Eat, focusing on a variety of nutrients, eating habits and food categories and how they influence the condition of the skin and “Essential Extractions: How to Do it Right” (demo!), in which a doctor explains the causes and treatment of comedones and performs a step-by-step extraction treatment. Bridges March 17 Leicester, United Kingdom It might sound dry, but this important event has some surprisingly interesting topics, including a case study called “Great Bridges Revisited: A great period of British road building—reflecting on the 1965 book of Modern British Bridges, documenting high-profile bridges, typical motorway bridges, footbridges and railway bridges.” World Drug Safety Congress April 12-5 Boston, Massachusetts The congress is focused on the international drug safety landscape, a global regulatory overview and recent developments, increasing complexities affecting the management of drug safety, data management and electronic submissions, financial and logistical constraints and an in-depth look at clinical safety and limitations to pre-marketing safety. 20 one+ 03 / 0 4.11
