Ex MPI Chair launches web-based industry resource

Paul Cook, managing director of Clarity Event Insurance and last year’s chairman of MPI UK, has launched www.planetplanit.biz – an online resource for the events industry, focused on the provision of education hints, tips and information.  It already includes a wide variety of information and insight from contributors across the international events industry and in time Cook expects it to be the industry’s number one knowledge base.

“During my career in the industry I have seen so many people offer great advice to others, only to have that advice used just once by the recipient,” said Cook. “A site like this ensures great ideas are recycled and made available to everyone helping us all learn from each other and get the most out of our industry relationships and knowledge.  The launch party was a great success and I was overwhelmed by the support showed by those who attended.”

Industry education stalwart, Rob Davidson of University of Westminster, added:  “www.planetplanit.biz has the potential to be a valuable new source of much–needed information and advice.  It will be particularly welcomed by those starting off on their careers as meeting planners.”

Meanwhile GIBTM & CIBTM, marketing manager, Katie Devaney, said:  “This is just what the events industry needs; with such great support behind it I am sure that www.planetplanit.biz will soon become an invaluable tool for meeting planners.  Thanks to Paul Cook and the Barbican for a great networking event on an otherwise cold and rainy London night.”
