General Sessions & Flash Point
As fantastic as our networking, hosted buyer and concurrent sessions are, we must say that our General Sessions and FlashPoint are serious don’t-miss programming. General Sessions will not only provide access to inspirational business professionals and education, but also introduce you to key leaders within MPI and the industry at large. FlashPoint is also a great introduction to a fantastic group of mini-keynotes that can serve as a platform for professional brainstorming or a speaker showcase – it all depends on what you’re looking for.
