MPI UK & Ireland Chapter supports industry professionals with renewed strategy and line up of 2013/2014 events

Meeting Professionals International, UK & Ireland Chapter has announced major changes to their association strategy as well as the addition of a number of MPI Learns and MPI Networks sessions, which will take place as part of their 2013/2014 event calendar.

Jane Baker, Commercial Director, CWT Meetings & Events UK and Head of MPI Events Committee spoke at last nights MPI Networking Event, which took place at Jewel, Covent Garden, London.

“We have worked hard to take on feedback from all of our valued members. In our strategy meeting last month, each of the teams presented their plans for their areas and we unanimously agreed our route forward. We now have a clear and coordinated approach to membership, education, marketing and sponsorship that we believe will help all of our members become more successful.”

Central to the new Board strategy is a focus on driving new corporate membership and as a result, MPI UK & Ireland have launched their first MPI Advisory Board, made up of corporate planners, who will provide the board with direction and feedback on ideas and future strategy.

“MPI members told us how critical education was to them so our event programme for the coming year will focus on knowledge and skills development through training. We’ve got interactive sessions from some of the industry’s leading experts on negotiation, presenting and being more assertive, as well as sharing the views and knowledge of some of our own industry experts, under a new event brand, MPI Learns”.

MPI will also continue to hold a monthly networking event, using venues that will attract corporate planners and with fully hosted food and drink, under a new brand, MPI Networks.
