MPI set out to show how to safely bring back business meetings and events. In the process we delivered much more with our signature education event, WEC Grapevine. From early critical choices to duty of care to the realities of hybrid - everything we've learned will inform the design and implementation of WEC Vegas, June 15-17, 2021.

A Special Thanks

It's not easy being a host chapter for WEC, and even tougher given the year we've all had. MPI DFW showed up in a BIG way - helping us promote the in-person and live events, recruiting volunteers, and bringing their incredible energy onsite. You helped make the event a huge success. Thank you.
