Organized by Questex Travel Group, publishers of International Meetings Review, the event is expected to draw nearly 1,000 attendees, bringing together meeting and event planning professionals with 120 leading suppliers representing hotels, resorts, meeting venues, convention and visitors bureaus, technology, event services and promotional and marketing products.

Kirk Lewis, director of the meetings group for Questex Travel Group, said the event, which caters to corporate direct, association, and government meeting professionals, has proven successful by offering one-to-one meetings and top-of-the-line training that provides valuable continuing education credits and robust networking opportunities.

“We are committed to delivering dynamic educational content to challenge and engage our conference attendees,” said Lewis. “We’ve partnered with the industry’s elite content providers including MPI, CIC, and SGMP to offer meeting professionals the most robust opportunity to enhance their personal development and increase their accreditation. There’s no other event in DC right now that can do that for today’s meeting professional.”

The MEET National conference will consist of three intensive MPI programs – Meetings Essentials, Health Care Meetings Compliance Certificate, and Going Local

MPI will also be experimenting with session formats to encourage interaction and engagement including fishbowls and campfires, knowledge cafés, and mashups. There will be limited space for those wanting to participate in the MPI sessions, and they will be offered at a fee.

Attendees can also participate at no charge in another 25 sessions, with topics that run the gamut including risk management, revenue management, venue selection, negotiation, content creation, speaker recruitment, and a strong emphasis on technology. The event will close with a town hall meeting which will feature several industry leaders including U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow.

MEET National will offer an innovative conference open to meeting professionals and exhibitors alike, with unlimited networking opportunities including 12-minute, pre-scheduled one-to-one appointments, an open expo floor, and an exclusive charity reception. MEET National is organized by Questex Travel Group in partnership with Meeting Professionals International and HSMAI.
