MPI is the association for people who bring people together.

We understand that when people meet face-to-face, it empowers them to stand shoulder-to-shoulder. That’s why we lead the world in professional development that advances the meeting and event industry—and the careers of the people in it. We connect the connectors so they can produce experiences that inspire, educate and energize.

Because when people meet, they can think in ways previously unthought. Because when people meet, they can break barriers.
Because when people meet, they can change the world.
