It’s the MOST wonderful time of year and we are excited to celebrate! MPI DFW and IACC have teamed up to IGNITE something special for our December event. Grab your colleagues, clients, and friends and join us for a spectacular holiday fun-filled networking event. Get insight into the latest trends in food, layout, and technology, spread some good cheer and enjoy fantastic food with our very own Iron Chef-like competition where chefs from IACC will go head-to-head for a top prize! We hope to see you there, with bells on!



Mark Cooper, IACC’s CEO joins us from the UK to facilitate an exploration of the future of meeting spaces. Roles, drivers, wants, and needs will be explored to smoke out the critical factors that contribute to the Meeting Experience, resulting in an understanding of where the design of meeting spaces must lead to create event and conference environments of tomorrow.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Learn how different meeting room environments support learning outcomes and help maximize meeting ROI.
  • Develop a better understanding of how technology can help build multi-way communication in the room and for virtual participants.
  • Consider the latest trends in food and beverage and how they can enhance the meetings experience for your delegates.
  • Consider the different venues types and non-traditional room layouts that help foster connections between and among delegates.

Available for one (1.0) hour of EIC Credit - Credit Pending


A Time For Grace
