MPI Announces Keynote Speakers, Education Program for IMEX America

Meeting Professionals International has announced its education program for the fifth edition of IMEX America in Las Vegas this October. MPI is the strategic partner and premier education provider for the tradeshow and will once again present the daily keynotes as well as power IMEX’s Smart Monday program on October 12. Additionally, the MPI Foundation will present Rendezvous, the IMEX America Night.
Smart Monday powered by MPI will include more than 30 education sessions, including a keynote, deep dives, and MPI’s Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate (HMCC) and Meeting Essentials courses. Clock hours can be earned for most sessions, and key topics include hotel and incentive travel trends, risk management and contracts, technology, green and socially responsible meetings, meeting design and more. In addition, MPI and PSAV will present the results from the first research project on the use and management of event technology in planning and executing meetings and events. 
MPI will present the following four keynote speakers:
Monday, October 12
Lee Papa – How to Live and Lead Mindfully

As an advisor, instructor and speaker, Lee has sought out to understand one's purpose and how to lead a more inspiring life. She will provide an explanation of what mindfulness practices are and how they greatly impact one’s life for the better as well as offer concepts and tools to use immediately to bring forth a positive shift. Attendees will understand the process of utilizing deliberate conscious living to experience a more profound life that is robust in overall health, mind, body and spirit.

Tim David – A Lost Art in a Noisy World

As a former professional magician and mentalist, David’s concentration was not on magic tricks, but the connection he made with the audience. Now, as an author and professional speaker, David will share the keys to creating a more human connection at work and in life. Attendees will leave feeling refreshed and with a renewed sense of what is really important – bringing that sense of purpose and meaning in to the workplace.

Josh Tickell – Managing and Marketing to the Future of Generation Y

As a film director who specializes in making movies with environmental messages popular with the 18-35 year old demographic, Tickell will reveal the secret world of social and psychological triggers that drive this generation. Attendees will learn how the “future-focused” value set differs from the previous generations and how to tailor sustainability policies, communication, human resources and customer service to meet the needs of the next generation of the marketplace.

Patrick Henry – Becoming Remember-able

As a former Nashville songwriter and SiriusXM satellite radio personality, Henry will discuss real world stories from his book, “The Pancake Principle: Seventeen STICKY Ways to Make Your Customers FLIP For You.” Attendees will learn about three mindsets to build an extraordinary customer experience.
MPI will also present education in its booth once again this year. Attendees are encouraged to stop by to network and learn more about MPI membership and volunteer opportunities.
In addition, the MPI Foundation will present Rendezvous, the IMEX America Night on Wednesday evening, October 14, at Drai’s, an indoor and outdoor club located on the rooftop of The Cromwell hotel.
