The chapter’s membership includes meeting planners, hoteliers, convention centre leaders, creative professionals and many more.

“When We Meet, We Change the World” is Meeting Professionals International’s (MPI) global message and brand promise.
 This recognizes that as an events industry association we understand the importance that event experiences must reflect the most current standards and trends for important event design elements such as: accessibility and inclusion, corporate social responsibility and sustainability practices, latest technology, culinary, and marketing & promotional tactics. As leaders in a global industry, we believe in best practices and we are constantly re-evaluating how we can create better events to ensure that the attendee is experience is unforgettable (in a good way).  Meeting Professionals International works both globally and locally to provide our members with networking opportunities, career enhancing education, and opportunities to grow as leaders.

The Board of Directors for the MPI BC Chapter is made up of both seasoned event professionals and rising stars that are ready to deliver on our promise of valuable member engagement.  Each year we deliver education and special events designed with the attendee experience and event sponsor return on investment at the forefront. Our collaborative processes enable customized approach that ensures value to all of our stakeholders: planner members, supplier members, student members, faculty, partners and sponsors.  We are also proud to continue our collaboration with the Vancouver Events Industry and fellow industry associations PCMA and ILEA on important events such as Global Meetings Industry Day 2020 and the award-winning Holiday Party.

At MPI “We connect the connectors to produce experiences that inspire, educate and energize”.
