Meeting Professionals International and the MPI Foundation have joined with the Masie Center & Learning Consortium to explore new learning opportunities for meeting professionals. The center will participate in a ThinkTank session at the MPI's Professional Education Conference-North America, being held in Houston Feb. 2-5, during which attendees will discuss the future of meetings. "As more companies embrace the strategic role meetings play in achieving their business goals, an even greater emphasis will be placed on how to conduct a more productive and impactful meeting by employing new technologies, re-examining the overall structure of the meeting, and enhancing knowledge and training for meeting professionals," said MPI president and CEO Bruce MacMillan in a statement.
