Meeting Professionals International (MPI) World Education Congress (WEC)

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) was held June 11-14, 2016 in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Harrah's Waterfront Conference Center. Held annually, WEC is MPI’s signature event through which it delivers premier education, business and networking opportunities, attracting more than 2,000 attendees including corporate, third party, and association planners, suppliers, students, industry faculty and more. The association initially planned to hold WEC 2016 in Philadelphia, but recently switched the location due to changes in the space available for the conference. Next year will be the first time MPI has hosted a conference in Atlantic City and the first time in the State of New Jersey.
