Please see this special video message from MPI Potomac Immediate Past President Anthony Molino about the impact of the coronavirus on our industry and chapter.

We were not expecting this.  
Just last week, we were enjoying Trivia Night and less than a month ago we were together at MACE.  Here we are in unprecedented and uncertain times. Even though these times are filled with uncertainty, we are certain about our meetings and events community.  We are in this together.  Whether planner, vendor, hotelier, association, CVB, DMC, or student, we’re all dealing with difficult decisions.  Whatever you're experiencing, you're not alone. Our MPI and MPI Potomac community is here for you.

Updated March 17, 2020

MPI Potomac is closely monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 coronavirus and is following national and international guidance regarding the situation. The safety and health of our members, participants, and sponsors is our highest priority.

MPI Potomac has decided to make some changes and is doing our best to #SaveEvents with our schedule for March and April 2020.

March Educational Experience (e2) March 26, 2020
To ensure the safety and health of their clients and employees, Convene, is closing all their locations for the remainder of March. We agree with this action and are canceling the March e2. All registrants will be refunded their registration fees paid.

Global Meeting Industry Day (GMID) April 14, 2020
The PCMA Capital Chapter, MPI Potomac Chapter and our industry partners have decided to postpone GMID 2020. Once new dates are announced, if you are unable to attend, please contact PCMA Capital Chapter and a full refund of any registration fees paid will be provided.

The 10th Annual Derby Days & Silent Auction April 22, 2020
MPI Potomac Chapter and our industry partners have decided to postpone our annual Derby Days Networking Event and our Silent Auction. All registrants will be refunded their registration fees paid. Please know this is a postponement and not a cancellation!

Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our members and venue staff. We are very conscious of the impact these recommendations have and continue to have on our industry. We are working on ways to keep our members engaged during these trying times and help members of our industry. Please know the MPI Potomac Chapter stands with you in support and we are here for you as we are all in this together. Wishing you and your organizations the best during this difficult time.

Anthony Molino
MPI Potomac Chapter Immediate Past President
