In the spirit of friendly competition MPI President and CEO Bruce MacMillan and his team at MPI’s HQ in Texas issued a challenge today to Kathleen (Kitty) Ratcliffe and her team at the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission.
MPI’s annual World Education Congress arrives in St. Louis, MO July 28-31, 2012 where thousands of meeting and event professionals from around the world will gather for professional development and to enhance business relationships.
“When the Texas Rangers win the 2011 World Series,” said MacMillan, “I want to see Kitty in her home town of St. Louis don a Texas Rangers jersey at our conference’s opening night reception amidst thousands of our colleagues."
Not to be outdone, Ratcliffe and her team in St. Louis, returned the challenge by insisting that after the St. Louis Cardinals win the World Series, and MacMillan arrives for WEC in July, he should be photographed hugging Stan “The Man” Musial’s statue outside of Busch Stadium wearing a Cardinals jersey, and the photo shared at the WEC opening general session in front of thousands of attendees and colleagues.
