Exciting times are ahead with Meeting Professionals International’s annual World Education Congress in August.

The event is slated for Aug. 1–Aug. 4., and while that seems ages away, the time is sure to come quickly; summer—as it always does—will fly by.

The event gives attendees a chance to broaden their industry knowledge, network with peers and be exposed to industry opportunities. There are a number of formal and informal face-to-face activities for attendees to learn and meet and greet.

There also are a number of signature events, including an opening night celebration at Pier 48, the RISE Awards Luncheon and the Closing Night Celebration at City Hall. MPI has a number of activities planned, and there will be something for everyone at their national events.

Taking place in San Francisco at the Moscone Center West, registration is at a lower rate until June 18—so it’s time to sign up now.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or an early careerist, WEC give you the knowledge and experience you need to further your career. 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
