What is happening at MPI Spain? The New Board of Directors was established the past 6th of July 2016 in Madrid.
Led by Angeles Moreno as the President, the new management board has been constituted with the objective to position MPI as the association of reference for professionals within the industry in this country, and also to lead this chapter to the next level in the following years.
The new directors on the Board, coming from different points of the Spanish geography and from different fields within the industry, will provide a greater diversity not only geographically but also professionally.
MPI Recognition in Spain
The priority of the Board is to encourage the communication with MPI Spain members through the agenda of its educational sessions (24 annual actions in several Spanish cities), networking events and its new recruitment plan using strategic alliances which will engage the pertinent institutional authorities and other industry associations.
Being “MPI member” has to be considered as a “MUST” among professionals in the management of meetings and events industry.
With the objective of encourage the insertion of new companies in the industry, MPI Spain is working on the “First Encounter for Entrepreneurs of the Meetings & Events Industry” which will allow the interchange of experiences between them and the consolidated and traditional companies. The selected ones, will present their projects to a team of experts with access to credit lines and investors. MPI Spain will count as well with a team of advisors that will help scaling businesses internationally and will give access to European support for entrepreneurs.
Young MPI Professionals Network.
Within this year 2016, MPI Spain will launch the “First Young Professionals Forum MPI”. We will develop specific training workshops for young professionals, Seminars and professional Certifications and meetings with prestigious mentors... and we will be creating a special program for them to attend to the EMEC 2017.
One of the main challenges of this year for the New Board is without a doubt the Organization and Promotion of EMEC17. It is certainly a great opportunity for the Spanish Chapter to be the host of this unique event with European level. The attendees will have numerous opportunities for networking, develop professional relationships with other members and benefit from an extensive education program with an innovative content.
The event will take place in a unique setting as the wonderful city of Granada.
