MPI Official Statement re: Hyatt Commissions Reduction

“MPI remains committed to our community of professionals who have been directly and indirectly impacted by decisions regarding commission reductions like this, including nearly 3,000 third-party planners, the global hotel brands and numerous Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs). In response to the reductions that started in early 2018, we developed the Independent and Small Business (ISBO) community, along with specific education and networking opportunities, to assist with career advancement and business growth. We will continue to support and provide resources to third-party organizations, an integral part of the live events industry value chain. Throughout our more than 40 years and long into the future, MPI will continue to serve as the industry leader in providing resources that empower our community to change the world.”
