MPIGNY 30/30

A note from MPI & CEO Paul Van Deventer

The news about the possible elimination of Brand USA is very concerning. Doing so would certainly have long-term negative impacts on travel and tourism, which are key drivers of the U.S. economy, representing $865 billion in direct spending; 15 percent of this figure (about $103 billion) is a result of meetings. Together, we must urge the U.S. Congress to support both the travel and meeting industries by protecting Brand USA.

The Past 30...

MPIGNY MASTER CLASS EVENT – "What if PPT ceased to exist"

On May 24th MPIGNY enjoyed a fantastic presentation by MJM Creative's CEO Chris Chambers. He presented various content delivery styles and spoke about the pros and cons of each. This unique presentation about presentations was a great way for meeting planners to think about new ways to deliver content and out of the box ideas to transform events. After the program we enjoyed a fun networking session on the rooftop. Thanks again to MJM for hosting us and inspiring our chapter!
