MPINCC ACE2.021 - A Virtual Journey for 2021!


By: MPI Northern California Chapter | Mar 29, 2021

MPI Northern California Chapter has transitioned ACE2.021 to a Virtual Journey for 2021! What can you expect from our virtual journey? Two mornings focused on education, networking, and community…with a little bit of fun mixed in as well!

When it comes to education, ACE2.021 has engaged our industry’s top thought leaders to present topics that are inspirational and relevant to all audiences - suppliers and planners alike. Whether you’re looking for professional development tips as we journey into the new normal, seeking best practices for audience engagement, or preparing for a transition back to in-person meetings, ACE2.021 has options for you. Below is a sneak peek of the breakout session options:

  • Audience Engagement in a Pandemic World
  • Getting the Sustainability Genie Out of Your Plastic Bottle
  • Meeting Contracts in a Post-COVID World
  • Welcome Back: Top Meeting Destinations Chart Their Comeback
  • The Day CES Made the Digital Shift
  • Women in Event Tech: From Pivots to Innovation

In addition to our slate of timely education breakout sessions, ACE2.021 features two keynote speakers that you don’t want to miss!

Kicking off day one is Adriana Gascoigne, Founder and CEO of Girls in Tech, with her presentation, “Jumping Out of ‘Bro Culture’ and Jumping in Success.”  Adriana was named one of the 20 most influential Latinos in Technology in 2018 by CNET, and she was the 2018 Pioneer Leadership Award winner at the Silicon Valley Latino Leadership Summit. From her diverse background to her many recognitions, MPINCC is lucky to have Adriana as our Keynote.

Lex Gillette, a multi-medalist Paralympian, a blind record-holding long jumper, will be closing out the conference on Wednesday, April 28. His presentation, “No Need for Sight When you Have a Vision,” will leave you inspired. It is an honor that Lex is taking a break from his training for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics to join us for ACE2.021!

Along with the amazing keynotes and education sessions, let’s not forget the networking and fun community-building opportunities!  Each morning we’ll be hosting “pre-boarding” between 8:30 AM - 9:00 AM where you can join other attendees to start your morning with the live DJ, photobooth, or in one of our Zen rooms! Looking to connect with new brands and partners? Our virtual marketplace will give you plenty of time to learn more about our valued ACE2.021 sponsors! Seeking peer-to-peer networking and ideation? ACE2.021 will host curated roundtable discussions for small group conversations on a variety of industry hot topics.
