MPI: Do it Yourself Networking

May 12, 2022
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Tooth & Nail Brewing Company

Your MPI Ottawa team could not be more excited about this news!   We’ve been virtual for over 2 years and we’re so excited to return to our roots and host an in-person DIY this month on Thursday May 12th (details below)

 Thursday May 12th, 2022
Time: Drop in anytime from 5pm - 7pm (if you choose to stay longer - not a problem!)
Location: Tooth & Nail Brewing Company, 3 Irving Ave, Ottawa, ON K1Y 1Z2

The concept of MPI: Do it Yourself Networking is simple; gather passionate event professionals together after work at a local venue with no registration, no fees, no nametags, no sales pitches and no host. The DIY theme permeates every aspect pre-event as well as on site.

Generally the venue is chosen by the membership via social media polls - but seeing as this will be next week - we'll have a venue pre-selected for this "Return of the DIY".  Guests are responsible for their own drink/food tabs. There are no moderators or hosts to greet or pitch guests. Guests can arrive whenever they want and leave whenever they want and no RSVPing is required.

What do guests get out of it one may ask?... exactly what they put into it!

Some guests use the opportunity to grow professionally by sharing ideas on how to better their events. Some students use this opportunity to introduce themselves to event industry influencers for employment or mentorship opportunities. The rest use the opportunity to catch up with colleagues who have become friends but whose jobs keep them too busy to see each other as often as they would like. Whatever the objective, everyone is welcomed at MPI DIY; members, non-members and students.
