Its inception goes back over 4 years, when the leaders from all Canadian Chapters got together at the annual MPI Chapter Business Summit in Plano, Texas. All sorts of discussions broke out on how to grow MPI in Canada and make it more relevant to its members; then someone asked the question “Why don’t we put on a joint Chapter event?”

From time to time we need to update our skills as planners and as suppliers. We are always interested in what’s new but more importantly how we can work smarter and not harder. Every now and then there is a product that fills a niche and is equally easy and helpful for a variety of users. One product that is gaining in popularity and being used more widely by properties and planners alike is Social Tables.
