World Education Congress. Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has announced the future locations and dates for its annual conference, the World Education Congress (WEC). WEC will be held in Las Vegas in 2017, followed by Indianapolis in 2018 and Toronto in 2019. MPI’s president and CEO, Paul Van Deventer first publicly announced the association’s plans yesterday during the opening general session of WEC 2015 in San Francisco.
WEC is MPI’s signature event through which it delivers premier education, business and networking opportunities in North America, attracting more than 2,000 attendees including corporate, third party, and association planners, suppliers, students, industry faculty and more. MPI follows a competitive request for proposal (RFP) process for all of its signature events and considers factors such as location benefits, meeting venue facilities, pricing, hotel offerings, destination accessibility, unique options and local support.
“We are excited about each of these destinations and believe WEC attendees will enjoy them as well,” said Van Deventer. “Each year, MPI strives to enhance the education and programming we deliver at WEC, so we look forward to working with our host city partners to enrich the attendee experience in the coming years.”
