International Live Events Association (ILEA) had their November meeting at The Neu Neu Center in Minneapolis. This brightly designed meeting had us dreaming of spring- despite the long winter we have ahead of us! These monthly meetings include connecting and networking with other local event professionals along with an educational component. For this meeting, event designer Kristin Banta with Kristin Banta Events did a Q&A with the attendees to help design beyond Pinterest and get clients on-board with the vision. Thanks to The Neu Neu Center, Blommonster, BBJ Linen Rental, and Common Roots Catering for sponsoring the event!
