Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is to introduce a hosted buyer programme at the European Meeting and Event Conference (EMEC), which takes place from 1st to 3rd February 2015 at the ICE Krakow Congress Centre in Poland.
The programme is to include 25 qualified corporate meeting planners, 15 of which will be European planners and 10 will be US-based planners that conduct business in Europe.
Until now, MPI has only offered a hosted buyer programme in North America at its annual World Education Congress (WEC).
Cynthia D’Aoust, chief operating officer, MPI, commented: "We are extremely pleased to debut our renowned hosted buyer programme in Poland next year.
"Our team has worked diligently to grow and refine the MPI Hosted Buyer Programme, so we are primed to deliver an exceptional and intimate experience that will be invaluable to participants during EMEC 2015."
Event planners who are accepted onto the hosted buyer programme will receive one complimentary EMEC 2015 registration, airfare credit and a three-night hotel stay. MPI is currently accepting applications.
EMEC is MPI’s signature event through which it delivers education, business and networking opportunities in Europe. The annual conference features distinguished presenters from the region and a variety of education sessions - many of which are eligible for clock hours or continuing education units.
