Exciting times are ahead with Meeting Professionals International’s annual World Education Congress in August.

The event is slated for Aug. 1–Aug. 4., and while that seems ages away, the time is sure to come quickly; summer—as it always does—will fly by.

The event gives attendees a chance to broaden their industry knowledge, network with peers and be exposed to industry opportunities. There are a number of formal and informal face-to-face activities for attendees to learn and meet and greet.

There also are a number of signature events, including an opening night celebration at Pier 48, the RISE Awards Luncheon and the Closing Night Celebration at City Hall. MPI has a number of activities planned, and there will be something for everyone at their national events.

Taking place in San Francisco at the Moscone Center West, registration is at a lower rate until June 18—so it’s time to sign up now.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or an early careerist, WEC give you the knowledge and experience you need to further your career. 

Pittsburgh may be known as The Steel City, but it has plenty of greenery, too, and opportunities for groups attending meetings here to get out in nature. The Pittsburgh CVB, which has the tagline “Only in Pittsburgh,” has proudly shared the news that the Great Allegany Passage was named a winner in the 2022 USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” travel award contest for “best recreational trail.” 

 

The Events Industry Council’s Certified Meeting Professional program, established in 1985, is recognized around the world as a badge of excellence in the events industry. 

 

In early March, Meeting Professionals International released a statement regarding the invasion of Ukraine: 

“In a show of support for the people of Ukraine, MPI will immediately suspend business with all companies in Russia. In addition, any plans to formalize a chapter in Russia will be paused….We remain concerned for the well-being of our community and our MPI members in Russia and Ukraine who were already seeking to climb out of the shadow of this pandemic and are now experiencing these unprecedented challenges.”
