With the support of a MPI Foundation grant, IACC is excited to share plans for a live showcase at MPI’s largest global meeting planner gathering, MPI WEC 2019.
For the last 3 years, IACC have delivered an annual set of industry insights and trends into the future of small to mid-size conferences and meetings. The annual report receives over 1,000 downloads and multiple features in trade publications throughout the year.
Working with MPI and other industry partners, the IACC Meeting Room of the Future initiative has proven there is an appetite to research planners and venues and to highlight innovations which builds confidence with meeting planners to host meetings in inspiring locations and to develop their meeting experience.
In June 2019, the initiative will move to the next level, by creating a showcase area that will immerse visitors in a forward looking educational and consultative experience. IACC will be publishing the 2019 Meeting Room of the Future report, following interviewing 250 global meeting planners.
We would like to thank the MPI Foundation for supporting our work through the Meeting Room of the Future Showcase project awarded by the Global Board of Trustees. The MPI Foundation is a non-profit organisation that fuels the advancement of MPI members by providing them professional development and career opportunities through grants and scholarships. The MPI Foundation also propels the meeting and event industry forward by funding innovative research and pan-industry initiatives that support the strategic plan of MPI.
