The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa
At this year’s MPISCC Annual Fundraiser, attendees mixed and mingled around the track at the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles. It was an unforgettable evening of gourmet dining, luxury vehicles and prizes galore.

Guests experienced some truly unique experiences at the Porsche Center—getting up close with some of the most famous sports cars in the world. Expert drivers whisked attendees away on exhilarating rides of over 100 mph!

Porsche also opened their Simulator Lab, where guests could experience the visual thrill of driving some of the world’s greatest race tracks with highly authentic physics and performance characteristics—another thrilling experience for event attendees.

January 28th is the Annual State of the Industry educational luncheon, and 2020 is sure to deliver!

We will begin the day with two stellar workshops: DMO Best Practices for Suppliers and Full-Throttle Goodness: Fueling Events with Passion, Power & Purpose.

Then it’s on to the main event.

Join us for one of our most powerful education events of the year, the 2020 State of the Industry Educational Luncheon. This year we bring together some of the most inspirational women of the meetings and hospitality industry to share their leadership journeys with our chapter. While the global meetings industry has always been predominantly female, women today are still grossly under represented in senior leadership positions.

During this luncheon these women will share powerful stories and personal testimonies and inspire us to ignite change within our own organizations.

  • Challenges faced in the workplace today
  • Balancing personal lives with careers
  • Breaking glass ceilings
  • How women can put themselves forward for leadership roles
