Satellite/Client Event Information
MPI realizes the value of networking with current or potential clients outside of the conference events during WEC 2011. In our efforts to partner with you and provide a return on investment to our host cities, MPI is tracking all events held in conjunction with MPI meetings. These events include but are not limited to any of the following:
- Social Events or Hospitality Events
- Media Events
- Educational programming
- Sales/Staff Meetings
- Chapter / Non-profit Events
- Focus Groups
- FAM Trips
Why does MPI track these events?
- It is important for MPI to collect your Satellite/Client Event information for the purpose of informing conference attendees about your event.
- MPI will only share open event information with conference attendees. Private events will remain invitation only.
- MPI uses this information to track how much business we were able to bring to the Host City and shares this with future cities so they can see the additional revenue potential of these events.
