2016 PCMA Southwest & Pacific Chapter 2016 HONORS

Evening Program prior to IMEX America at Hakkasan at the MGM Resort, Las Vegas, NV

Hakkasan...the BEST dance, nightlife and music venue in Las Vegas.  This is our night to have an exclusive event at the MGM Grand at the renowned London–based Asian-fusion nightclub experience.

We could not think of a better way honor these industry leaders:

** Rossi Ralenkotter, President & CEO of the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority

** Mickey Schaefer, CEO of the EXPERIENCE Institute®

No sit down meals, but rather a most unique culinary eating experience that will allow you to mingle throughout the night.

Proceeds from this event enable the chapter to continue to support face-to-face meetings that create personal connections and a strong community for industry professionals through year-round education and charitable contributions.

This year's program is in collaboration with PCMA Education Foundation
