MPI Collaborates with DMAI to Provide Planning Tool for Meeting Planners




Yesterday, Meeting Professionals International announced a partnership with Destination Marketing Association International to help MPI members (and non-members) with sourcing locations for meetings and events.

MPI recently incorporated the Destination Finder tool, powered by DMAI’s empowerMINT.com, into its website. Through the web portal, meeting professionals can research and compare destinations as well as reach out to contacts at destination marketing organizations – also known as convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs) – representing destinations, hotels and convention facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
 
empowerMINT.com’s Destination Finder has extensive information on destinations and CVBs, including details on meeting facilities, CVB services, news, promotions and maps of hotels and venues. Meeting planners can also use the tool to submit questions directly to CVB sales professionals serving a particular market, and send specific meeting requests and RFPs to one or multiple destinations.
 
empowerMINT.com’s latest features include professionally curated news feeds from each destination incorporated directly into their profile page. The feeds keep meeting planners informed about recent renovations, new hotel or facilities development and other offerings specifically relevant to meeting planning.
 
For more information and to use Destination Finder, visit www.mpiweb.org/destination-finder.
