MPI Heads to Grapevine, Texas, for WEC 2020




Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has selected Grapevine, Texas, as the destination for its World Education Congress (WEC) in 2020. The association will collaborate with the Grapevine Convention and Visitors Bureau to host the conference, which is scheduled for June 6 – 9, 2020, at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center. Grapevine is centrally located between Fort Worth and Dallas, where MPI is headquartered.

WEC is MPI’s signature event through which it delivers education, business and networking opportunities in North America. It attracts more than 2,000 attendees annually, including corporate, third party, and association planners, suppliers, students, industry faculty and more. MPI follows a competitive request for proposal (RFP) process for its signature events and considers factors such as location benefits, meeting venue facilities, pricing, hotel offerings, destination accessibility, unique options and local support.

The City of Grapevine has a historic downtown district, special event venues with more than one million square feet of meeting space and 20 hotels with 5,400-plus hotel rooms. It is also home to the Grapevine Urban Wine and Craft Brew Trail, has three public golf courses, including the Cowboys Golf Club, the world’s only NFL-themed golf course, and was named a “World Festival and Event City” by the International Festival and Events Association in 2012.

The year 2020 will mark the second time MPI’s WEC has been held in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. In 2006, WEC was hosted at the Dallas Convention Center, which was renamed the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in 2013.

This year’s WEC will be held June 2 – 5, 2018, at the Indiana Conference Center in Indianapolis. To learn more or register for WEC18, visit www.mpiweb.org/wec-2018.
