“I’ve felt a major shift in the past month in both demand and optimism to return to in-person meetings and events as we look forward to the fall – venues are in high demand already!” Victoria said. “Coming together at (WE)Con as an industry that has displayed such resilience and discussing challenges and how we found our own innovative ways to overcome them fills me with such optimism for the future.”

MPI’s Southern California chapter is its fourth largest in the world with over 450 members. They seek to inspire innovative learning and big ideas from their passionate members and global audiences, with the overarching goal to create agents of change and to reinvent the world. One of the ways they do this is with the annual (WE)Con: an award-winning Weekend Educational Conference.

On the panel, Victoria was joined by leading Southern California representatives from: Terranea, The Langham Pasadena, The Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board, and ALHI.
