Dallas. Meeting Professionals International (MPI) announced today that it has selected Atlantic City, N.J., as the destination for its 2016 World Education Congress (WEC). The conference will be held June 11-14, 2016, at the Harrah’s Atlantic City Waterfront Conference Center, a Caesars Entertainment property and the newest and largest hotel-conference center complex from Baltimore to Boston. MPI announced its plans with Meet AC and Caesars Entertainment during a press conference this afternoon in Atlantic City featuring Mayor Don Guardian and other local dignitaries.
Held annually, WEC is MPI’s signature event through which it delivers premier education, business and networking opportunities, attracting more than 2,000 attendees including corporate, third party, and association planners, suppliers, students, industry faculty and more. The association initially planned to hold WEC 2016 in Philadelphia, but recently switched the location due to changes in the space available for the conference. Next year will be the first time MPI has hosted a conference in Atlantic City and the first time in the State of New Jersey.
