The Association of Meeting Professionals (AMPs) is getting back to what their members and the Industry wants…live events! The much anticipated and long awaited Summer Bash was held on Tuesday, July 13 with 150+ participants. Held at the American Institute of Architects @aiaspecialevents it was a HOT event in more ways than one. Although it was originally scheduled to be held outdoors, the heat was the driving factor in bringing the party indoors. AIA provided a great live event space where attendees were spread out on two levels in an open atrium to allow for physical distancing if attendees felt more comfortable.
Going inside didn’t stop the fun of everyone being together and feeling comfortable to hug friends and colleagues and respecting those that wanted to maintain social distancing.
It was a great event that included music by Scott Kurt, food and beverage by Root and Stem . A menu of summertime salads, sliders, cones and mini desserts, attendees cooled themselves down with light summer drinks. We even offered an outdoor seating area where attendees could comfortably watch a cornhole competition!
Attendees came not only from the DMV but as far as California to participate in this annual event. It was a much needed event as we slowly re-enter the live event space comfortably and safely. For more information on AMPs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit: https://ampsweb.org/
