MPI Adds Puppies, CMP Prep and HMCC Courses, and More to Smart Monday at IMEX America

WHAT:                 Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has added the following program elements to the schedule for Smart Monday at IMEX America, which is October 17th in Las Vegas.


CMP Master Class – This interactive session covers industry best practices as outlined in the CMP International Standards (CMP-IS) and will help participants prepare for the exam and apply key learnings on the led light bulbs for home job. Additional registration and fees are required.


Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate (HMCC) Course – This intensive four-hour MPI Academy course provides healthcare meeting compliance stakeholders with the knowledge and experience needed to successfully navigate the increasingly complex pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device regulatory environment. Additional registration and fees are required.


BRAINSTORM Discussions – Four engaging discussions will be held throughout the day in the Brainstorm area on the following topics: Food and Beverage Trends, Women in Leadership, Mentorships, and Cool Technologies. The facilitator of each session will be Karin Krogh, president of the MPI Denmark Chapter and certified process consultant, facilitator and Meetovator.


Paws for a Break – MPI will team up with Love Dog Adventures, an animal assisted therapy program based in Las Vegas, to bring several dogs that attendees can spend time with or just admire from a distance. These visiting sessions – also known as Puppy Cuddling – have become very popular with attendees at MPI’s World Education Congress (WEC) over the last few years and are sponsored by Visit Norfolk, a longtime supporter of the program.


Headshot Station – MPI has engaged Orange Photography, the official photographers of the last five WECs, to take complimentary professional headshots of show attendees. This offering will also be available during IMEX America show days, October 18 - 20.
