IPMI's 2nd Annual New York Platinum Dinner Recap

IPMI's Second Annual Platinum Dinner was another complete success! With tickets sold out as early as July this year, it was a must attend event in which more than 240 attendees enjoyed mingling at a cocktail hour in the Kennedy Ballroom of the Palace Hotel before moving on to the dinner in the resplendent Holmes Ballrooms. The attendees enjoyed a frank, often humorous discussion by the popular Fox Business News Anchor Stuart Varney. Mr. Varney, whose presentation was entitled, "21st Century America: A new Day in Politics, Culture and Business" which touched on varying topics including immigration, financial trends and the future of the financial market. He then graciously took questions from the audience and posed for photographs with dinner guests. Plans are already underway for the Third Annual Platinum Dinner. We hope to see you there!

Thank you to the 2014 Sponsors of the IPMI 2nd Annual Platinum Dinner!
