WEC Grapevine | June 6 - 9, 2020

 

Authentic events depend on the authenticity of their location.

That’s why Grapevine, Texas, is the perfect setting for MPI’s 2020 World Education Congress. It turns the notion of “big Texas” on its side and shows the genuine hospitality of the Lone Star State. Through modern, vibrant event education—combined with the unique charm of Grapevine—we’ll demonstrate what it means to produce the authenticity that people crave from meetings and events.

The food will be locally-sourced—and locally flavored—and the sights, sounds and sensations will not only make you smile, they’ll be delivered with a smile from the friendliest, most genuine people on the planet.

The result is a memorable, authentic experience unlike any other. Which is exactly what attendees expect from WEC.
