Salute to the Stars – Bob Nelson, CMP, CMM

By: MPISTL | Jan 4, 2018

bob-nelsonThis month we would like to recognize Bob Nelson as our Salute to the Stars nominee. Bob has worked tirelessly in advancing student engagement and membership with the MPI St. Louis Area Chapter and hospitality industry. Bob spearheaded a campaign to help cultivate industry knowledge for future hospitality professionals. The campaign goal is to have premier hospitality organizations from St. Louis come together and present a united front of the meetings industry to hospitality students. This helps promote the importance of getting involved with professional industry organization, such as MPI.

In addition to Bob’s effort to unite MPI, the International Life Events Association (ILEA), and the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI), he also played a significant role in engaging our student members at EduCon 2017. Not only did Bob encourage students to attend EduCon by promoting the student registration rate, he also coordinated hospitality tours for the student attendees the following day. Eleven students from three universities participated in touring Ballpark Village, Hilton at the Ballpark/Three Sixty, and Busch Stadium. During the tours, students met with sales, operations and revenue professionals.

The future of the meetings industry are the Student Members. Bob, thank you for your passion and continuous effort to see MPI St. Louis Area Chapter into the future. We salute you!
