South Florida Meeting Professionals celebrate a true Feast & Coronation
There is no better self accomplishment than to be recognized by your piers. The South Florida chapter of MPI (Meeting Professionals International) celebrated their Award Recipients and incoming new Board of Directors.
Yours truly (that’s me) was installed as PRESIDENT of this prestigious organization, at The Trump International Beach Resort in Miami, Florida.
MPI, the meeting and event industry’s largest and most vibrant global community, helps its members thrive by providing human connections to knowledge and ideas, relationships, and marketplaces. MPI membership is comprised of more than 23,000 members belonging to 71 chapters and clubs worldwide.
To say that it was an honor to stand before the chapter members and take the oath of presidency, is an understatement.
This prodigious event was themed in the Renaissance period (costumes optional), with gates and red carpeting leading you into a banquet room of Kings Tables and castle background staging.
The King (me) and the Queen (the outgoing President) walked into the Banquet room across the red carpet, to the sounds of trumpets playing.
It was a euphoric moment, only to be followed by a Magician/Jester entertainer and knighting the incoming Board of Directors with a real sword. Luckily I did not cut anyone’s ear off.
As you can see by the photos, the amount of detail in the decor was flawless and only equaled by the amazing entertainment and delectable food. It was a superfluous night!
