MPI Foundation Breaks Fundraising Record at WEC 2014

The Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Foundation recently raised more than $170,000 during the 2014 World Education Congress (WEC), setting a new record for the most money raised at an MPI conference. The funds will go towards the MPI Foundation Education Endowment, which provides chapter grants and scholarships to MPI members.

 

The MPI Foundation held three fundraisers during WEC 2014, including The Big Deal, an official World Series of Poker satellite tournament; the Not-So-Silent Auction; and Rendezvous, the foundation’s signature networking event. Next month, the foundation will host its largest networking fundraiser, Rendezvous, the IMEX America Night on October 15, 2014. The annual event usually draws close to 2,000 industry professionals and will be held this year at Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub on the rooftop of The Cromwell in Las Vegas.

 

“Thank you to everyone who supported MPI Foundation events during WEC earlier this month and also to those who will join us for Rendezvous, the IMEX America Night in October,” said Gus Vonderheide, chairman of the MPI Foundation. “Your support of the MPI Foundation will strengthen our community today and help secure the future of our industry.”

 

Since January 2013, the MPI Foundation has provided more than $1 million in grants, scholarships and pan-industry research. The foundation currently offers MPI membership 21 different types of scholarship opportunities as well as three types of grants for MPI chapters. Detailed information and applications as well as new video testimonials can be found on the foundation’s website.

 

MPI Foundation U.S. events in 2014 are made possible thanks to generous contributions from several sponsors, including Caesars Entertainment, Encore Productions, Hilton Worldwide, San Francisco Travel, Universal Orlando, IMEX America, Freeman, and Synchronicities.
