Dallas, Texas, March 24, 2021 – Meeting Professionals International (MPI), the world's largest industry association for meeting and event professionals, released details on their Duty of Care and latest keynote speaker for their signature event, World Education Congress (WEC) Vegas taking place June 15-17, 2021 at CAESARS FORUM. The association seeks to build on a successful Duty of Care created at WEC Grapevine held November 2020 in Texas which resulted in zero attributed COVID cases. 

Focused on ensuring a safe and healthy environment for all attendees, MPI seeks to provide cutting edge, relevant and enriching education and networking experiences at WEC delivered in unique and innovative settings.

MPI has demonstrated success in planning safe in-person experiences. Last year’s WEC Grapevine resulted in a 99% satisfaction rate with its Duty of Care procedures. For WEC Vegas the association is building on that success ensuring safety and wellness for all attendees. Guidelines for distancing, masking and sanitation will be in place, in addition to having an onsite clinic.

MPI is following CDC and local guidelines closely as it relates to any and all requirements, safety measures and protocols, including those related to testing and/or vaccine data.
