MPI introduces groundbreaking commercial and public TV segment promoting the meeting and event industry

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) announced today it has developed an educational commercial and a public television interstitial segment to increase awareness for the meeting and event industry. Both TV spots are part of the organization’s Meetings Move Us ForwardSM grassroots communication effort, which was designed to help MPI members promote the value of the work they do.

The one-minute commercial is scheduled to debut in the US, airing twice between 9 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. EST on January 23 and also during the evening of January 24, on FOX Business Network. Also, it will run regionally in the top 200 direct marketing areas on various major cable networks including CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, FOX News and more January 20 – 31, 2014, during the prime time viewing hours of 6 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. EST. The interstitial program was produced for “In Focus,” a short-form documentary series that airs on public television stations across the country. This educational segment will also run during the course of 2014.

“At MPI, we believe it is our responsibility to serve as a strong voice for our members and the broader meeting and event industry,” explains Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI. “The economic and business value of our industry is often not recognized, so we created these television spots to show the diversity, breadth and impact of our industry as well as the important role it plays in our economy.”
