Gallery: Scenes from the 2014 CIC Hall of Leaders Gala

The Convention Industry Council’s Hall of Leaders gala, which won a Global Espirit award recently for its 2013 event from the International Special Events Society, was held October 12 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The CIC honored three meetings industry luminaries—Patti Shock, professor and academic consultant, University of Las Vegas/International School of Hospitality; John Christison, principal and managing member, BCI+Network; and Gary Sain, the former president/CEO of Visit Orlando, who passed away in 2012. They join 111 others already inducted into the Hall of Leaders, which serves to highlight the achievements of industry pioneers who have brought changes to both the meetings industry and business culture over the course of their careers.
