Academy Sales Training

Your sales team or business development department needs to understand the world of meetings and events in order to find their competitive edge. Meeting professionals are looking for partners not vendors, and they are looking to industry suppliers for not only products but also advice and even education. Make sure your sales team understands the stressors and challenges facing today’s meeting professional. MPI will come to the venue of your choice and teach your staff about the current meetings landscape and how they fit into the meetings continuum. Get the information you need about the current market and the impact to meeting and event planners and position your team for success.
