As meeting and event professionals, our passion for what we do drives us. We create emotional experiences that bring people together. We create human interactions that enlighten, inspire and energize. We help people become better people.
Our passion for connecting people is what will unite us for MPI’s 2017 European Meetings and Events Conference in Granada, Spain, where we’ll refocus on the human side of events. Granada is alive with the spirit of duende, the spirit of passion and evocation. Everywhere you turn, your senses will be delighted and your emotions heightened, your mind filled with possibilities and your soul filled with potential. As a result, you’ll learn, you’ll laugh, you’ll fall in love with what you do all over again.
#EMEC17’s programming lineup features evocative sessions and exciting formats that will get you thinking outside the ballroom and about the future of what’s possible.
Our general sessions will invigorate: On Sunday’s we’ll dive into the Mavericks economy; Monday’s Pitch Perfect keynote will help you hone and effectively deliver your business’s story; and on Tuesday we’ll uncover what it takes to deliver Extraordinary Experience Design. #EMEC17’s concurrent sessions and master classes will cover everything from the art of Quiet Influence and the effects of Social Innovation to the importance of emergency preparedness and lessons from an SAP corporate planner. Learning Labs will feature Hackathons, StorySlams and SpaceRaces. And that’s just a sample of the learning experiences you’ll have at your fingertips.
But let’s not forget the business opportunities that abound. #EMEC17’s Hosted Buyer program puts qualified planners face-to-face with suppliers to get business done.
And the networking events, including the MPI Foundation’s Rendezvous fundraiser, provide everyone the chance to connect and reconnect in incredible environments with the best local cuisine and culture that Granada has to offer.
When we meet, we change the world. When we meet at #EMEC17 in Granada, the spirit of duende will change our minds and our souls, and rekindle passion for what we do.
Looking forward to see you in Granada! MPI team
