NELA is committed to utilizing socially responsible venues for our events and works closely with the Informed Meetings Exchange (INMEX) to find locations that respect the communities, the workers, and the environment in which they operate. Founded in 2006 with the support of the hotel workers’ union (UNITE HERE), INMEX is a non-profit organization that provides comprehensive meeting planning resources. Unlike traditional third-party meeting planners, we ensure you’re booking meetings with socially responsible hotel corporations.
