First and foremost, arriving at the airport was surreal, as this was my first time traveling in years. Very exciting! Extra bonus, I had the luxury of traveling on the same flight with many of my incredible St. Louis Employee Relocation Council friends.
Walking into the conference shed new light as the pandemic profoundly disrupted the mobility industry and the way we operate. We have all come together in various ways throughout the pandemic, making us stronger and more united. Seeing people in person, and spreading hugs and love, has been much needed for many of us. We are an industry where relationships matter and remain at the forefront of every employee experience.
MRC was a new learning experience, as we all had the opportunity to hear direct from industry experts on the following topics:
The social event on Thursday night featuring Bella Cain at Downtown Kitchen was a huge success. I had a blast greeting everyone and working the registration table. It was a fabulous evening of networking, dancing, and my first experience eating a walking taco. Wow, I have been missing out!

Finally, the closing session of this remarkable conference was from the executive view and how to manage talent in 2022. Industry leaders provided insight into recent challenges to attracting and relocating top talent. The pandemic has accelerated the need for companies to re-think their hiring practices while competing for top talent.
Looking back, I’m absolutely blessed to have been amongst the most accomplished mobility industry colleagues, including our Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Gabriel Wacker and very thankful Viciniti granted me the opportunity to attend.
A HUGE thank you to MRC Conference Co-Chairs:
