Oscar Cerezales, global executive vice president of MCI Group, has been awarded the 2019 Chairman’s Award at PCMA Convening Leaders, which wraps up today at Moscone Center in San Francisco after a four-day run.
Cerezales received the award due to his contributions to PCMA and the overall business events industry, as well as his role in building the Latin American audience for the organization. He also codeveloped plans for PCMA’s regional advisory boards in the Asia-Pacific and EMEA regions, and designed the Leadership Summit program for C-suite and senior-level leaders at Convening Leaders 2020, which was hosted by San Francisco Travel Association.
“When I joined PCMA, it was all about volunteering—I’m just trying to walk the talk,” Cerezales said while accepting the award. His company, MCI Group, is based in Geneva and specializes in creating face-to-face and digital experiences.
Past recipients of the award include Team PCMA; Isabel Bardient, CEO of European Society of Cardiology; and Janet Tan-Collis, president of Singapore Association of Conventions and Exhibition Organizers and Suppliers, as well as founder and CEO of East West Planners in Singapore.
