Feed your mind.

Powered and programmed by the MPI Academy, WEC Louisville’s education will be a Kentucky-sized charcuterie board for the brain. Featuring formats of all shapes and sizes, and top-of-mind takeaways for event professionals of every level, what you learn will nurture your career like never before.



Four-star networking.

At WEC's networking events, we're bringing you out into Louisville to see what all the buzz is about. We'll be featuring a one-of-a-kind experience (trust us) at Churchill Downs, a memorable President's Dinner honoring Steve O'Malley, another unbeatable night of getting down and giving back at Rendezvous, benefiting the MPI Foundation, and closing out WEC in the heart of the city at 4th Street Live! We promise; you'll have the time of your life while connecting with the best people of your profession.





Business: always
on the menu.



WEC Market
The WEC Market is a flight of ideas, people and partnerships that can take your career or business to new heights. Our partners are crafting customized activations and they’ll be an organic continuation of your learning journey. Step up to a bar serving up career resources—along with a crafted cocktail—or roll up your sleeves for a community service project benefitting the people of Louisville.



Hosted Buyer Program
For focused and fruitful face-to-face business, MPI’s Hosted Buyer Program is the ultimate pairing. Our program joins pre-qualified planners—with real buying power— with suppliers that can help bring their events to life. You’ll not only come away with immediate impacts on your bottom line, but with business relationships that will age like wine.







Your journey doesn't end when WEC does. Not only will
your experience in Louisville be incredible, the experience
you gain will be invaluable. You'll take it with you
and use it to fuel your career for years to come. And, because you
get to craft your own, you'll have a better understanding
of what it takes to craft customized event experiences for
your attendees.
