VIVA Creative Attends MPI’s Mid Atlantic Conference and Expo (MACE) 2019

Read About Our Team’s Top Three Takeaways

VIVA Creative attended MPI’s Mid Atlantic Conference and Expo (MACE) 2019 at the National Harbor on February 22, 2019. This educational conference and business forum brought together meeting and event professionals from the Mid-Atlantic region at the beautiful MGM National Harbor Hotel.

Our team attended various educational sessions, including the final keynote presentation by the fabulous Joanna Coles. While these sessions were interesting and informative, the highlight of the experience was the invigorating conversations we had with hundreds of colleagues in the meetings and events industry.

Summarizing these conversations, we walked away from MACE 2019 feeling inspired, excited, and encouraged about three things:

  1. The Mid-Atlantic region — and specifically the Washington, DC area — is a thriving place for the events industry with over 700 members in the MPI Potomac Chapter. We are happy to be a creative contributor in this market!
  2. It takes passion, attention to detail, and hard work to keep up with the swiftly evolving event industry. From 4K video, to AR, to VR—who knows what the future will bring!? Shout out to all the great people working in this market!
  3. Event managers of all types struggle with metrics. When we mentioned our Event Metrics research study and our goal to get to the core of people’s issues with collecting event metrics, the conversations grew and everyone was interested, engaged, and excited to participate.  Join-in to help move the industry forward and make your voice heard. Take the survey here.

Thank you to MPI Potomac for putting on an awesome event. As a leading media production and events company in this market, we are inspired and honored to be a part of this community. It was wonderful for our team to spend the day interacting with the many faces that make our industry successful.
