Are you ready to "Come On Down"?
MPI New Jersey and ILEA NJ North are jointly hosting the January education program at The Palace at Somerset Park.

The program, a takeoff on the classic game show "The Price Is Right" will be interactive and high-energy, with Jaclyn Bernstein coming in from New York City as our game show host/moderator!

The program will help both planners and suppliers learn:
-The difference between a "budget" and an "investment"
-How to develop trusted relationships with supplier partners to protect the integrity of your events
-When to work with production companies & DMCs
-Where to be more resourceful when funds are tighter and
you still want an elegant look

We'll have a look at corporate, association, and social events and test our skills using interactive response technology from Lively Events to see if we really understand exactly what the investment is to produce high quality meetings & events!

Jaclyn's career began at college at a boutique DMC, Tours de Force Events, rising to Vice-President. 
In 1994, Jaclyn purchased the company with business partner Rob Hulsmeyer and embarking on 20 years of award-winning event productions, destination management, and professional recognition worldwide. 

A true born and raised Brooklyn, New Yorker, Jaclyn’s known for her very NY personality.
 Jaclyn’s an acknowledged leader in NYC’s hospitality industry, sitting on the Board of NYC & Company / Convention and Visitors Bureau; as well as being inducted into the International Special Events Society (ISES) New York Metro Chapter’s Hall of Legends.  

She’s also been inducted into Biz Bash’s and Event Solutions magazine’s Hall of Fame, as well as winning the Spotlight ‘Event Planner of The Year’ and ‘Samaritan Service’ Awards.
