Meeting & Event Recovery Survey

In an effort to help track the industry’s re-emergence, MPI along with The Venetian Resort Las Vegas and the IMEX Group, have designed a Recovery Index. This Index provides our community with the ongoing ability to evaluate when meeting and event planners project industry recovery.

Your participation will provide a real-time glimpse from those at the front lines. We will be gathering and sharing this data twice weekly with the meetings community so that we’re all positioned to thrive once we get back to work. By supporting each other, we will come out of this stronger. Please take this survey regularly to report your evolving situation.

MPI News

The COVID-19 global health crisis has forced businesses to pivot faster than ever, especially in the hospitality and event industries.
“My dog is running a lot more miles than usual since my human running partners and I are social distancing.”
The global meeting and event industry, nearly 13,000 strong, came together, albeit virtually, on Tuesday for a 12-hour, worldwide event hosted by MPI and focused on education, inspiration and networking during the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
