A year in review!

It’s true: 2016 will go down as having been fraught with economic and social uncertainty as well as both threatened and actualized attacks at meeting and event venues—including the Pulse nightclub shooting, the deadliest attack in the U.S. since Sept. 11, 2001. Yet another tragic reminder of event safety came down earlier this month with the Ghost Ship art collective/party fire in Oakland, Calif., that claimed dozens of souls.

No, not nearly as pleasant as last year’s summation, which centered on disruptive business types and how they were impacting our professional landscape. Instead, the summation of 2016 may be best expressed through a renewed focus on safety and security issues at events—beyond contingency for an alternate venue should rain interfere with your plans, all the way to keeping people alive.

Even as the U.K. considers the legal challenges of exiting from the European Union and presidential vote recount efforts in the U.S. percolate, uncertainty continues to spread with more surprising political developments, such as Italy’s populist-leaning “No” vote, the resignation of Italy’s Prime Minister and the resignation of New Zealand’s Prime Minister—all of which took place over the course of 24 hours in early December!

It’s not just all danger and the unknown, though. In our third annual Year in Review you’ll find essential updates and about these and other important topics, trends and people of 2016—including original MPI research and peers that you interfaced with, thanks to The Meeting Professional.
