MPI Smart Monday Goes to the Dogs

Visit Norfolk's Paws for a Break brings K9s to IMEX America

Paws for Break IMEX

You could say that Smart Monday, MPI's day of education at IMEX America, is going to the dogs. But in a good way. This year, Visit Norfolk sponsored Paws for a Break, a three-hour event in the public space outside the breakout sessions.

Attendees had the opportunity to interact with therapy dogs provided by Michael's Angel Paws, a Las Vegas-based organization that brings therapy dogs to hospitals, schools, and now corporate events.

The company has 100 trained therapy dogs, like Memphis, pictured here in action. Memphis was trained at the Davis School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California. It's just one of the many activities and event ideas on show at IMEX America.
