The first day of IMEX America, which launched Tuesday in Las Vegas, focused on education. Keynote speaker Lee Papa urged attendees to practice "mindfulness" as a key to happiness in both professional and private life:

Keynote speaker Lee Papa led off Smart Monday October 12, IMEX America’s day of education, developed in partnership with Meeting Professionals International. Papa is a trainer, author, and former stressed-out, Type A businessperson who now lives an entirely different life and makes it her mission to help others do the same. Introducing Papa, Carina Bauer, CEO, IMEX Group, explained that mindfulness and well-being are close to the hearts of the IMEX team, and that this year IMEX America incorporated a wellness track throughout the pre-show education day and during the event itself. From the keynote stage, Papa presented a combination of the mystical and the practical, appealing not just to the crystal-carriers in the crowd but to cynics as well. (She’s also savvy, asking the audience to tweet about her session before silencing their phones!)--MeetingsNet
