Visit MPI at Stand D700 at IMEX Frankfurt.
Meetings Professional International will focus on education at this year’s IMEX Frankfurt as part of its commitment to supporting the development of its members.
During the show MPI is holding two special education sessions. The first, being held on Tuesday May 21 (4-5pm, Room Ratio, Level 9.1, Hall 9) will focus on Strategic Meetings Management (SMM) Co-creation. Led by Peggy Hemphill, Your Corporate Source, and Betsy Bondurant, Bondurant Consulting, the session will cover service delivery, technology and data management and the convergence of travel and meetings spend and management.

The second session - Strategic Meetings Management (SMM) The Business Value for Your Organisation, on Thursday May 23 (8.30-9.30am, Room Esprit, Level 9.1, Hall 9) - will open with an introduction to the basics of SMM and early findings of the SMM Research Study, commissioned by the MPI Foundation. This will be followed by round table discussions, facilitated by each of the SMM experts, to help delegates get an insight into how they can apply these principles within their organization and ask questions that relate directly to their situation.
Alongside these sessions, MPI will be holding a reception on its stand on Tuesday May 21 and Wednesday May 22 (4-5pm) where attendees interested in joining the organisation can talk to members about the benefits it offers.
Samme Allen, President of MPI UK and Ireland Chapter, comments: “MPI is committed to educating it’s members, which is why these two sessions have been organised on the topic of Strategic Meetings Management (SMM). SMM can be defined differently, based on geographical, cultural and business needs within an organisation, so these sessions will provide the participants with an introduction to the basics; why it is important; and its business value along with insight into the early findings of the foundation’s SMM Research Study. We also encourage visitors to come and visit our stand to see how they can benefit from MPI membership. It’s a great opportunity to meet members and get first hand feedback on how the association has helped member’s personal development.”
