Where do 2,500 unsung heroes go to share war stories and triumphs with people who understand the art and science of a smoothly run event? They gathered at last week's Meeting Professionals International's Professional Education Conference at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. They shared the best practices of an industry that annually holds more than one million meetings and serves 79 million attendees, according to Meetings & Conventions magazine.

One thing you can be sure of: This meeting was efficient and well run, with every imaginable precaution and forethought. (The schedule of events even had 12-step program meetings included.)
