Message of the President





Dear Members, Chapter Sponsors and Supporters,

There has been a sense of celebration this summer; out on the streets, in our hotels, convention venues, and stadiums. I hope you too can see and feel the revival of our hospitality and meetings industry. 

This fall marks MPI BC’s 35th Anniversary. As an industry we’ve experienced so much growth and evolution over the past 35 years. When our Chapter was founded in 1987 we had just hosted the World’s Fair/Expo 86, drawing more than 22 million visitors to our city. Since then, the MPI BC members have championed many notable global events such as the Winter Olympics and the TED Conferences, in addition to industry events like MPI Global’s World Education Conference and the PCMA Convening Leaders Conference. And, in the near future Vancouver will be an official FIFA World Cup 2026 Host City. 

These events and many like them take an army of talented individuals to orchestrate. At times, it can be several years or even a decade before we get to experience the fruits of our labour. Our very talented members are involved in local, national and international events and their talents shine bright near and far. When you join the MPI community you experience the value of being connected to a group of highly engaged professionals. 

This year we are focused on strengthening our connections, providing education you can use in today’s environment and of course celebrating our members, their successes, and advancements to industry over the past 35 years! Thank you to all the Past Presidents, Vice Presidents and Board Members that have worked hard to bring us to where we are today; your dedication and hard work is never forgotten. To all our current and soon to be members, we welcome you to come on a journey with us to imagine what the next 35 years will hold for our Chapter and our industry! 

I hope to see you all at an upcoming MPI BC Chapter event!
