Some members of our team are headed to the ADMEI Annual Conference and the accompanying Awards Gala this week and weekend in Chicago! Cindy, Rachel, and Liz are attending the conference, and Cindy will be passing her baton onto the next Vice President of Finance for the organization. It has been an honor for her to serve the DMC community by way of the ADMEI board the last three years.

The conference is focusing on a word we at Red Velvet Events are pretty familiar with: EVOLVE! Does that ring a bell? Evolve was our word of the year in 2017, and we’re glad to see our fellow event industry members are also focusing so heavily on it. This year’s ADMEI Annual Conference is offering a series of speakers to help DMCs rethink organization, event design, digital strategy, and more. We’re looking forward to connecting and networking with our industry peers and developing stronger relationships with them while learning new strategies to take home to Austin. Relationships happens to be our word of the year for 2018, by the way!

We also want to congratulate our team members who have been nominated for ADMEI Awards: Amanda Batts, Christa SanFilippo, and Jessica Fitting, CMP. Join us in wishing them the best of luck this weekend!
