MPI Chicago Area Chapter Events

MPI-CAC offers a wide variety of engaging education and networking events throughout the year.  

Our education events such as Knowledge Shares, Signature Luncheon and Industry Xchange provide the opportunity to learn from your peers as well as from subject matter experts in the meetings and events industry and beyond.  Networking opportunities are infused in every MPI-CAC event, though it takes center stage in our special events such as the Holiday Party, Golf Classic and Trivia Night.  We never miss an opportunity to recognize the best in the industry and that is never more evident than at the Annual Awards Recognition Celebration.
