For a flavoring of what our Annual Conference was like last year; see below:

We don’t just need to connect – we need to ReConnect!

For the second year, MPI’s Annual education day has taken on this special branding to get everyone together again as we continue to navigate meetings and events in dynamic environments.

The 2022 conference is taking place in-person at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center on May 5, 2022.

Attendees will get to participate in an unconference format to exchange ideas and learn from one another.

WeConnect Keynote Speaker: Michael Dominguez, President & CEO, ALHI

WeConnect Unconference Hosts: Haute Companies

The energetic team from Haute will be facilitating this exciting format where you can expect to find new connections and new ideas by challenging the standard way we share information at our events.

Bring your greatest challenges that you’re facing in your business right now to get solved. Bring your expertise and a problem you’ve solved for yourself or someone else to share.

This day is all about YOU! You’ll leave with actionable insights, real solutions, and more connections than you’ve had in a long time! Plus, if you’re up for it, sneak in a hug or two! And bonus…

You’ll learn about the latest business metric that sweeping the industry: Return on Emotion!
