Meeting Professionals International has selected Atlantic City as the destination for its 2016 World Education Congress. The conference will be held June 11-14, 2016, at Harrah's Atlantic City Waterfront Conference Center, which is under construction and set to debut this August. This marks the first time MPI has hosted a conference in the Garden State. The association initially planned to hold WEC 2016 in Philadelphia, but recently switched the location due to changes in the space available for the conference. "We look forward to hosting our World Education Congress in Atlantic City next year," said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI. "When selecting venues for events, we look for destinations that provide great infrastructure, world-class facilities and memorable experiences. Having grown up spending my summers on the Jersey Shore, I am excited for the opportunity to showcase this unique and beautiful destination to our community."
