CWT Meetings & Events, Grass Roots, Ashfield Meetings & Events, Capita Travel & Events and Zibrant sign up to MPI Connects

MPI has launched MPI Connects, a new event designed to bring together industry employers and talented industry jobseekers. It will combine insightful education with speed-dating style meetings, enabling industry jobseekers to understand more about potential positions or internships, and for employers to give guidance on interviewing skills as well as how to clinch that all-important first job.

Ashfield Meetings & Events, Grass Roots, CWT Meetings and Events, Capita Travel & Events and Zibrant have already signed up to participate in this half day event on the 12th May in Central London.  It is anticipated that 50 agency/corporate planners will participate as industry recruiters plus 150 students and jobseekers.  

The day also features the MPI Young Achievers Award, sponsored by the Switzerland Convention Bureau. The competition invites teams of event management students representing leading universities to pitch their solutions to the Swiss brief. The winning team will be selected on the evening by a panel of esteemed judges with the winners awarded a trip to Switzerland.  

Jane Baker, VP Education at MPI UK and Ireland and Commercial Director UK at CWT Meetings & Events comments “MPI has a mission to make members more successful in their chosen fields, and our activity in 2014 will focus on developing leading industry talent through accreditation, learning and mentoring. For students this means supporting their transition from full time education into the varied set of careers offered across our industry. MPI Connects was created to link them to potential recruiters and equip them with knowledge and learning that will help them succeed at interview. We are delighted to be participating”.
