Better 4 Business
Designing the Future of Work 2022

What do the workers of today and tomorrow want and need, and how can we create environments that attract, retain and inspire professionals—both new and tenured—who are passionate and fulfilled? 

How can we help emerging professionals see a future career in the meeting and event sector, regardless of where they begin their journey?

How do we define the empowerment of today’s workers and embrace it—be it the Great Recession or its fashionable variants (Reshuffle, Reprioritization, Realization, Reimagination)?

MPI’s 2022 Thought Leaders Summit will be the first industry event to answer these questions. Through a series of micro-keynotes, to deep discussions, to tell-all conversations about what makes a workplace attractive and a job unleavable, we’ll curate a series of actionable takeaways that individuals, organizations, and associations can use to create future-ready environments and workplaces that help our industry thrive!

VIP Experience

  • VIP experience throughout the summit, including subsidized airfare for qualified planners, airport transfers, accommodations, private receptions, and hotel amenities.

  • Exclusive excursions throughout the coastal area, sampling everything from the funky and festive to the cool, colorful and cultured — you'll find an authentic experience like nowhere else in the southern United States.

  • Reserved networking experience with the most strategic leaders in the industry.
