2020 Educational Institute Goes Virtual
Submit Your Content Online

MPI England Educational Institute Logo No Date


Meeting Professionals International New England Chapter (MPI/NE) invites you to submit your ideas and speaker presentations for our 2020 Virtual Educational Institute on November 23rd. 
Our Institute sessions are to be no more than 60 minutes for a keynote and no more than 30 minutes for a breakout session. These should be complete learning experiences with specific outcomes and learning objectives.  We are open to proposals from individuals, collectives, and industry partners.  Our members are particularly interested in sessions that engage attendees in unique ways and are creative twists that are more than just the standard presenter/PowerPoint model. We have found that our most popular sessions take the form of:
  • Facilitated Discussions—present an issue or trend as a conversation among experts followed by Q&A.
  • Case Studies—describe a program or project in‐depth, focusing on innovative solutions to clearly defined challenges and their implications for the field.
  • Skill‐Building and Hands‐On Learning Experiences—encourage participants to use professional skills to explore a scenario and to teach and learn new tactics.
  • Experiential—introduce participants to a topic or issue through a creative presentation followed by feedback, discussion, and questions.

Please note that submitting a session idea or speaker does not mean that session will be selected for the Institute. The Institute Committee will review submissions and speakers will be contacted within two weeks of the submission deadline.

We thank you in advance for helping us continue to build the Educational Institute 2020 into the best learning and networking event of the year.
You can click the "next step button" below to submit your submission form.  Please feel free to forward this to colleagues or speakers you feel may be interested in presenting. 
Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. 
The deadline to submit your ideas and speaker presentations is, Friday, October 30th, so do not delay!
