Earlier this month, Northstar Meetings Group hosted its first-ever Destination East event in Boston. The gathering, held Oct. 14-16, brought together nearly 80 meeting professionals at the recently renovated Boston Park Plaza hotel for three days of networking and education.
To ensure the highest levels of safety, all attendees were required to provide proof of full vaccination or present a negative Covid-19 PCR test, taken within 72 hours of the event. Temperature checks were taken daily and venue cleanings were enhanced. Masks were required to be worn at all times while indoors, unless when people were actively eating or drinking.
In addition to our beautiful host property, Destination East was supported by a number of generous sponsors: Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau, Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau, Cambridge Office for Tourism, Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board, Moxy Boston Downtown, CSI DMC, PPX Hospitality Brands, Goodman Speakers, Seiko Watches, Delta Air Lines, Aventri Software and pc/nametag.
