MPI CRV is a CMP Preferred Provider. We have submitted the April 30th Education session to the EIC for review. If approved, the session will be worth 3 hours of continuing education (CE) credit for the Certified Meeting Professional credential. 

Why Planners Should Attend:

Take the time to meet with industry suppliers during our trade show and learn about new companies, venues, speakers, etc. This is the time for them to put their best foot forward for you. When you visit a designated number of suppliers during the trade show, you will be entered into the raffle to win items provided by the suppliers that you have just met with! Winners will be selected at the networking reception and, just a head’s up, you must be present to win.

Why Suppliers Should Attend:

Partner with MPI CRV for 3 hours of education to learn this year’s industry trends and showcase your company at the trade show. The trade show will be sandwiched between two heavy-hitting education sessions which will highlight industry trends. Stay on top of the game as a supplier in our industry and strengthen your relationships with local planner partners.

This year, we will provide planners with an opportunity to visit with you for an hour following the first education session. In that hour, they will receive a passport which will encourage them to visit a designated number of tables.

In turn, they will be entered into the trade show raffle for prizes to be provided by you. Bring your best experiences and items to this raffle! Planners in the Connecticut River Valley area are responsible for planning meetings and events throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and over 15 other countries with a variety of meeting sizes. These planners are spending approximately $30 million dollars a year on their meetings and events. Now is the time to get in front of these planners to showcase your organization.
