A recently conducted survey by IMEX concluded that wellbeing is a top priority for meeting professionals. IMEX will offer a series of wellbeing initiatives at IMEX America this year to recognize the wellbeing for meeting professionals.

The event will take place Oct. 18–20 in Las Vegas and has several initiatives planned over its course. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, IMEX will host the IMEXrun, a 5K run along the Vegas Strip at dawn. The Be Well Lounge returns, led by trainer Lee Papa and her team. Regular sessions on yoga, mindfulness and mediation are offered as part of the initiative. Garbage Grabbers-Clean Up offers delegates the opportunity to ‘netwalk’ and interact with the local community.

On Monday, Oct. 17, volunteers can join the IMEX staff to participate in Exclusive Destination with 3D Destinations, GES and MeetGreen. This initiative also offers participants a chance to give back and to also netwalk with other meeting professionals.

Colorado has 58 mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet, known locally as “fourteeners” or “14ers.” This is more than any other state and includes the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak, where standing at the summit in 1893 inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem “America” that today is known as the song “America the Beautiful.”

 

For someone who cringes at simply popping a cork on bubbly, sabering offers an alternative, as long as skillfully hefting a heavy sword is doable. It’s certainly impressive enough to watch, but how does someone add this skill to their repertoire?
