Quest Conference Center

We Know Meetings

The Big Dish

Apr 02

At the core of Quest Conference Center’s business is great hospitality. What is “Hospitality” you ask? Well its formal definition, according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, is “The generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests: Hospitable treatment.” Many businesses in the hospitality world would have plenty more to add to this definition. Here at Quest we would define hospitality as:  going above and beyond our guests’ expectations to make each event a total success and in return, creating Raving Fans! In order to be a successful hospitality business, it all starts with a certain kind of employee.

 So where do you find these hospitable employees? The Ohio State University’s Hospitality Management Program is a great local institution that graduates many suitable hospitality employees each year. Many of these graduates go on to have careers in Top Management positions through out the country. Hospitality programs, like OSU’s, need help raising funds to better their programs for future students.

 Ohio State’s annual fundraising event has been titled “The Big Dish” for about three years. This event was created for a few key reasons. First and foremost, it is a fundraising event for the hospitality major with specific initiatives in mind. Secondly, this event is used as a powerful networking event for seniors and recent graduates in the hospitality major. It is a great opportunity for students to make connections with industry professionals, and also for hospitality companies to interact with the future of hospitality. Lastly, their goal is to create a course around this event for those interested in event planning. The course would make “The Big Dish” a completely student run event. This kind of hands on experience is exactly what makes Ohio State’s Hospitality Management program a great breeding ground for future hospitality employees.

Mid America Conference In Columbus

Feb 28

Each year the Ohio and Kentucky Chapters of Meeting Professionals International put on one of the best regional educational conferences in the country, featuring some of the most well-known speakers in the industry. The conference raises a great deal of funds for both chapters which are instrumental in providing top notch services for their members throughout the year. The conference moves between states each year, even taking place in Indiana in 2013. Starting this Sunday, MPI Ohio is thrilled to be holding this much anticipated event in Downtown Columbus. This gives MPI the ability to really showcase not only the conference to meeting professionals but also Central Ohio as a meeting destination. Exposing Columbus to a core group of meeting and event professionals allows planners to be introduced to the wide variety of options in the city, including Quest!


The opening night reception sponsored by the Hyatt Regency Columbus is always a great way to start the Conference off, featuring an awesome networking session for planners and suppliers alike. This is an opportunity for industry folks to make connections, inquire about business and overall just learn from their peers experiences. This year the theme of the reception is “Party Like a Rockstar!”, featuring DJ Toad.
There is a new Emmcee this year, Scott Christopher a speaker, actor and author of the book “People People: Who They Are. Why They Win. How to Be One”. Scott is sure to provide energy to the conference education and plenty of entertainment for attendees. The opening Keynote address on Monday features Dave Gordon, Co-Founder of the brand alignment agency Gordon Creative, Inc. Through this presentation Mr. Gordon helps audiences “rekindle or enhance your meaning of what you do each and every day”.


The MPI Mid America Conference is pleased to welcome VP of Sales for MGM Resorts and MPI International Chairman Michael Dominguez, CHSE as the Tuesday Morning General Session speaker. For the past few years Mid America has been able to hear the state of the meetings industry straight from the top. Being able to get feedback from the individual who is knee deep in the big picture of the industry everyday enables the audience to gain a varied perspective on their own company’s outlook, and how they align with what others are experiencing throughout the world.


The year the conference features a variety of educational programs for all attendees, but really does a good job at enabling you to customize your own schedule based around what you are looking to get out of the conference. If you are a planner wanting to dig into planner specific breakout sessions, there are a number of those to choose from. If you are interested in more big picture leadership and innovation sessions, you are in the right place. For everyone that is attending the conference next week, let us know how you enjoyed the experience! Have a great weekend everyone!
