WEC 18

Experience the Unexpected at WEC18

WEC18 in Indy is a completely redesigned education and engagement program unlike anything we've done before. In an entirely new design setting, WEC18 will ignite new ideas and connect you with the people you need to meet. With this new format, MPI is taking risks so you don’t have to. Here's how we'll do it:

 

 

 

DESIGN YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE

You normally design other people’s experiences. This year, you get to design your own. WEC18 will feature completely customizable education, networking and business exchanges. And you’ll have help provided by the WEC Experience Coach. Your WEC Experience Coach will help you curate and organize your experience from the pre-event planning to onsite exploring.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

We're moving education out of the session rooms and into the WEC Villages. Each village will bring to life a theme: Innovation, Leadership, Experiential Design and Social. You’ll experience live learning in an open-floor, fluid layout that will get your mind moving and your network growing.

PUT A LITTLE PEP IN YOUR STEP

We'll start and end each day together with all-new WEC Pep Rallies. Each morning and afternoon, we’ll get you pumped up with activities and inspiration. They'll kick-start your day of education and re-energize you for the evening!
