What's more fun than learning about wine? Learning about wine and then getting to drink wine.

That was the experience last night for over 140 meeting and event professionals who gathered at the spiffy Aloft Boston Hotel. Jonathan Sobel the Director of Restaurants Bars and Venues at the Sheraton Boston and Tina Silverberg the Corporate Sommelier at Legal Seafoods were our presenters.

Jonathan talked about avoiding the same-old-same-old in our beverage offerings and how to reimagine a space to make it more inviting for our guests. Tina took us on a thoroughly enjoyable odyssey of wines and wine growing regions around the world and gave many helpful tips on what wines are currently popular. Then we drank some wine!

MPI/NE constantly strives to bring you educational experiences that are relevant and add to your professional skills. Sorry we missed you last night.

Special thanks to our host Aloft Boston Seaport Hotel and event co-chairs Ashley Cakounes, CMP, Stephanie Baxter and Robb DeSimone.

See their presentations.
