As the President of this incredible chapter and organization, it is an honor to lead such a talented and passionate group of meeting and event professionals.

The MPI, UK & Ireland Chapter is growing from strength to strength with a community of 140 members representing different features of the events industry.  Our members are event planners and organisers, partner suppliers to the industry and students who are looking forward to making their career in this innovative and exciting industry.  Globally, MPI is the largest meeting and events industry association with over 16,000 engaged members and 64 Chapters and Clubs – 11 of which are here in Europe.

At MPI, we uphold a set of core values that guide our actions and shape our culture. These values include collaboration , innovation, inclusivity and professionalism.

As we embark on this journey  together, I encourage you to actively engage with our chapter. Attend our meetings and events, participate in our educational sessions, and connect with fellow members. MPI is not just an organization; it is a community of like-minded professionals who are here to support and inspire one another.
