MPI's Planning Guide: A Source for Meetings and Conventions
One of MPI's Top 10 Best Sellers.
MPI has completed an update of our comprehensive book Meeting and Conventions: A Planning Guide to include the industry's first-ever standardized meeting planning final templates from the APEX initiative of the Convention Industry Council (CIC)! As well we updated our chapter on tradeshow booth/exhibit standards.
This resource is one of the best resources in the industry and now it is even better! It offers meeting planners a comprehensive, global guide/toolkit and reference for producing meetings internationally. But it also has another critical, valuable use and that is as a teaching tool now being used in many colleges and universities!
Originally published in 1997, the book was radically revised in 2003 and updated 2006 to include an interactive CD with 33 MPI checklists and templates that planners to suit any meeting, convention or event. All these tools have been kept and the CD has even been updated with the APEX templates as well as offering the 33 MPI tools.
For Planners: Find everything from identifying a client's meeting objectives to budgeting; from negotiating to contracting; from program development to evaluating and everything in between!
For Faculty: The book offers novice to intermediate comprehensive meeting planning skills, a self-test at the end of each chapter and a conference journal related to the topic discussed in the chapters. (A unique feature of the book for the learner, this is an account of a Meeting Professional as she plans a Conference and Tradeshow. A teaching moment - and reality check!)
