Presidents Message


Welcome to MPI UK & Ireland!  We have a strong community of over 200 members which consists of event organisers, suppliers as well as students who are on the brink of becoming part of this innovative and exciting industry.  Globally MPI is the largest meeting and events industry association with over 17,000 engaged members and a worldwide community of over 60,000 meetings and events professionals. Our mission is to connect the global meeting and event community to learn, innovate, collaborate and advocate. 

The MPI UK & Ireland chapter is committed to providing the best education and experiences to inspire and connect the industry and ultimately to provide you with tools and content to help you produce your best meetings and events.

Becoming an MPI member opens you up to a global community with an estimated buying power of $22 billion. You also benefit from 24/7 on demand professional development through the MPI website as well as Industry Leading research.

In the UK and Ireland, we host educational and networking events across the year to provide attendees with engaging content, which can benefit both your personal and professional development, as well as creating networking opportunities to hep business make connections locally and globally through our worldwide network.  Events we have hosted in the past include our annual MPI Economic Insights event, MPI Connects (connecting businesses with graduates looking for their first role), as well as thought provoking roundtable discussions and fun networking events.  I hope to see you at one of our events this coming year. 

I’ve been involved with MPI since 2012 and became a member and volunteer in 2015.  For me it’s brought endless opportunities to grow my personal network as well as helping with my professional development, but most importantly I can honestly say I am a member of the ‘MPI family’ and that’s a great feeling.  I always have a network of colleagues and friends in the industry which I can reach out to when needed. Join our chapter family and I am sure you will reap the rewards.  We’re always happy to welcome non-members to our events as well, so please don’t feel you are missing out if you’re not ready to take the plunge with membership just yet.  Come and meet us first, check out our events page to see what’s coming. 
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any thoughts, suggestions or ways in which we can improve our chapter and help you get the most from it.  And I hope to meet you soon.
