MPI Raises More Than $170,000 During World Education Congress

Good news from MPI today: The Meeting Professionals International Foundation raised more than $170,000 during the 2014 World Education Congress (WEC), setting a new record for the most money raised at an MPI conference. The funds will go towards the MPI Foundation Education Endowment, which provides chapter grants and scholarships to MPI members. 
The MPI Foundation held three fundraisers during WEC 2014, including The Big Deal, an official World Series of Poker satellite tournament; the Not-So-Silent Auction; and Rendezvous, the foundation’s signature networking event. Next month, the foundation will host its largest networking fundraiser, Rendezvous, the IMEX America Night on October 15, 2014. The annual event usually draws close to 2,000 industry professionals and will be held this year at Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub on the rooftop of The Cromwell in Las Vegas. 
Since January 2013, the MPI Foundation has provided more than $1 million in grants, scholarships and pan-industry research. The foundation currently offers MPI membership 21 different types of scholarship opportunities as well as three types of grants for MPI chapters. Detailed information and applications as well as new video testimonials can be found on the foundation’s website.
MPI Foundation U.S. events in 2014 are made possible thanks to contributions from several sponsors, including Caesars Entertainment, Encore Productions, Hilton Worldwide, San Francisco Travel, Universal Orlando, IMEX America, Freeman, and Synchronicities.
