Thursday Evening Reception

VIP Secret Garden & Vineyard Reception

Thursday, August 27, 2015 from 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

MPI | SEC 2015 VIP Secret Garden Event

“Out with the old and in with the new!”  For MPI-SEC 2015, we say goodbye to the old fashioned tradeshow exhibits and hello to a no fuss way to connect meeting planners and suppliers, in a more casual, fun party atmosphere. This will provide the ultimate environment for client interaction.

Connecting Planners & Suppliers

You talked and we listened! The level of participation amongst meeting planners has decreased year after year. The most common complaint received from suppliers is that exhibiting at the tradeshow is expensive, unpredictable, inefficient, and too often unproductive.

This year, MPI | SEC developed a better way for you to showcase your business and make meaningful connections with potential new clients in a more conducive setting—without the fuss of having to set up an exhibit table. Bring lots of business cards and get ready to interact.

Live Entertainment

Enjoy the sounds of “Pavlo” during the event. In his 9th album, “Six String Blvd,” Pavlo incorporates the world’s most exotic instruments into his classic Mediterranean sound. Influenced by his travels, you will be captured by the Chinese Ehru, Portuguese Guitarra, Arabic Flute, Indian Sitar and of course the Greek Bouzouki.

Chance to Win Treasured Prizes

Planners will have the opportunity to win a variety of different prizes including treasured gift cards from Apple, Visa and American Express. All Suppliers that participate in the MPI SEC appointment show, powered by XSITE, will get (1) ticket per company to attend this innovative and fun networking event. Space is limited to the first 90 registered Suppliers, which include those from the appointment show. Don’t miss your chance to participate in this fabulous networking opportunity.
