More Meta as NFTs Star in Upcoming Events





If you are planning to watch the GRAMMY Awards on April 3, 2022, you may notice it’s the first year the Recording Academy is offering a free NFT collection for fans as part of the festivities. As someone who has been tapped to work with this new partner, OneOf, a Green NFT platform designed for the music, sports and LifeStyles community, it’s been a feast for the imagination in terms of how the evolving virtual metaverse and applications like NFTs will impact the meetings, events and brand experience industry. NFT stands for “non-fungible token,” meaning these are unique, irreplaceable digital assets that can’t be replaced, much like a baseball trading card or piece of memorabilia. The OneOf collection launched with a free NFT available to all music fans with just one, unique asset containing a “golden ticket” to attend the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards. NFTs are an exciting part of Web3 and the evolving metaverse, our future social technology, which feels an awful like Second Life. The metaverse and Web3 will likely need at least five more years to fully develop, but it’s already having an impact on our industry and will continue to provide fresh, creative enhancements for meetings and events professionals in the years to come.

Cautious Optimism in Early 2022

By Sharon Ricketts, CMM, January 12, 2022



Huntington Place



The MPI Michigan Chapter is approaching 2022 with enthusiastic optimism. While some of the first mega-events of the year have been thrown a Covid curveball, we are delighted to learn that the North American International Auto Show is returning to Detroit after a three-year hiatus, backed by a $9 million grant from the U.S Government to revive a show once thought to be “as dead as a dinosaur bone” according to Auto Evolution. This fall, NAIAS will return to the City of Detroit, anchored by Huntington Place and extend throughout the city with indoor and outdoor experiences and festivities between September 17-25, 2022. It should keep many in our industry busy planning, selling and managing hotel, convention, and off-site activities. In other areas of the state, the National Traverse City Cherry Festival planning is underway for July 2-9 and ArtPrize 2022 in also intended to return its traditional format in Fall of 2022. We are all doing our happy dances with fingers crossed!
