Global business deals are taking place in Barcelona this week and our reporter on the ground, Bianca Manteuffel, Manager of Member Services for MPI is giving us a sneak peak with some help from Maria Jacobsson, Chapter Business Manager for MPI. Both Bianca and Maria hail from the MPI EMEA office in Luxembourg.
As Day 2 draws to a close, MPI staff are celebrating again after another busy and successful day at EIBTM 2010!
A total of 12 new members have now joined our global community over the last two days, and six members renewed their membership with MPI and around 50 prospects have showed an interest in learning more about MPI and our global community.
Additionally, we also had two more registrations for the European Meetings & Events Conference made directly at our stand.
As part of the EIBTM Agency Hosted Buyer programme, MPI set up a seminar with Roy Sheppard and Peter Fisk with more than 300 participants.
The content was remarkable. Great job Miranda!
MPI also announced the European partnership with the Switzerland Convention and Incentive Bureau. An audience of around 150 members joined to celebrate this announcement and network at the MPI Partner reception.
After a long day on the tradeshow floor, connecting with over 150 members over a glass of champagne at the MPI Partner reception was a great way to end day two.
Stay tuned for more news from Barcelona soon!
All the best,
On Sunday the 28th of November, 15 European chapter leaders met in Barcelona before the opening of EIBTM. Joyce Dogniez, CMM and I facilitated the day with the focus on chapter business; succession planning process, content delivery modules and member satisfaction. The meeting was extremely successful and the leaders are very satisfied.
During EIBTM, I had an average of 6 chapter leader meetings per day to discuss chapter business and development within the chapters on a local level. This week has been incredible!
