The Corporate Event Marketing Association (CEMA) provides a community for senior-level strategic event marketers and industry professionals to share their knowledge and best-practices. The organization’s annual CEMA Summit event was held July 21-23, 2019 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The conference promised a lineup focused on knowledge-sharing, learning and relationship-building. This, paired with the opportunity to catch up with industry friends and participate in a host of fun activities, is something that puts the Summit on my personal “must attend” list.
The event experience began even before the conference kicked off. Upon arrival at the hotel, Summit attendees were greeted in the crowded hotel lobby and whisked away into the quiet sanctuary of the Stay Well Check-in lounge. Staff offered custom-labeled infused water as a welcome refreshment (temperatures outside were already well over 100 degrees, even at noon), and took care of check-in right there.
The welcome reception at Top Golf was a fun, albeit loud event, with a live band, bar, fun stations like an alcohol-infused cotton candy stand and of course the ability to hit a few balls. Proxfinity sponsored special “affinity” badges for the reception, with a detachable plastic part that lit up when two attendees had pre-selected the same pick-list answer to an ice-breaker question (such as “what is your spirit animal” – mine was bald eagle).
