MPI to Deliver Smart Monday Education and Keynotes at IMEX America for Sixth Consecutive Year

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) will return to Las Vegas this fall to deliver educational programming during IMEX America. As the strategic partner and premier education provider for the show, MPI will present the daily keynotes as well as power the Smart Monday program on October 17, 2016. In addition, the MPI Foundation will present its largest fundraising and networking event of the year – Rendezvous, the IMEX America Night.


Smart Monday powered by MPI will feature nearly 30 education sessions covering topics such as crisis planning, medical meetings, contracts, Wi-Fi, strategic communications, and the sharing economy. Education designed for senior-level meeting professionals include the Senior Meeting Executive Group Therapy, Hotel Contracts Boot Camp for Experienced Planners and Legal Tips and Practical Guidelines for Meeting Professionals sessions. The majority of the education sessions are aligned to the CMP International Standards and are eligible for clock hours.


“Our Smart Monday program will have a variety of education sessions designed for meeting professionals at all levels, and this year we added more sessions for mid to senior level planners,” said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI. “Over the past few years, MPI has consistently received high satisfaction scores – 90 percent and higher – on education we deliver at our signature events and IMEX America, and our goal is to keep that momentum going.” 


“We are proud to be working with MPI once again this year to deliver key education on Smart Monday as well as their daily morning keynotes. These sessions have become an integral part of the IMEX America week,” said IMEX CEO Carina Bauer. “MPI continues to deliver sessions that are fresh, relevant and impactful on important topics like innovation and personal development. We know that attendees are in for another great week of both business and professional development.”


Each morning, MPI will present the following four inspirational keynote speakers during the show.
