IMEX-MPI-MCI Future Leaders Forums

The Future Leaders Forum program jointly run by IMEX, MCI, and MPI has been developed to encourage the best and brightest students to enter the meetings and incentive travel industry. Over 6,500 students have passed through the program since its launch in 2003, attending one of over 110 Forums worldwide. 90% have said they are more likely to enter the industry as a result. Specifically, this program is designed for students who are in their junior or senior year of college, or pursuing their master's or doctorate degrees, and are interested in making a career in the meeting and event industry.  The next Future Leaders Forum is at:

"The Future Leaders Forum has allowed me to experience and meet people that I normally wouldn’t meet. It has also given me the opportunity to learn more about myself and given me guidance to what I want to do with my future, I am truly grateful."  
Krystal Burt, Oklahoma State University
