Whether this is your first time attending the CMP Conclave or you attend each year, the 2015 CMP Conclave is one you don't want to miss! The CMP Conclave is the only yearly networking and educational event just for Certified Meeting Professionals. Don't miss out on this opportunity to expand your knowledge, build relationships and partner with other meeting professionals. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the designation, and we will be celebrating that milestone during Conclave. Register now and join us September 26-28, 2015 in Reno, Nevada. There are so many reasons why you should attend Conclave.  Here are a few:  

Award-Winning Keynotes

If you have previously attended Conclave, you know to expect top notch educational sessions on topics you need to stay on top (and ahead) of. This year's keynotes promise to exceed that expectation, with topics like: 
  • The Assumpt! The Dangers and Opportunities of Your Assumptions | Andy Cohen, founder of Andy Cohen Worldwide
  • How Hotels Evaluate Your Business (The Hotel Industry 2.0) | Michael Dominguez, CHSE, Senior Vice-President, Chief Sales Officer, MGM Resorts International,
  • Front Row Leadership | Motivational speaker Marilyn Sherman
  • Event Technology Trends for 2015 |  Julius Solaris, editor of EventManagerBlog.
But don't just take our word for it. Successful Meetings recently named two of our keynote speakers, Michael Dominguez and Julius Solaris, among "The 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry for 2015." Come and hear them both speak at one event! 
Health Care Focus

The health care sector, once considered a niche area of meeting management, is growing, and so is the need for a similarly specialized certification. Along with required reporting and transparency, understanding compliance is critical for anyone involved in health care meeting management. This year, CIC is offering a pre-conference session dedicated specifically to health care meeting management at Conclave! The Healthcare Meeting Compliance session is designed for planners and suppliers who need a broader understanding of a full range of  global regulatory topics. Facilitated by Pat Schaumann, CMP, CSEP, DMCP, HMCC, director, Professional Development-Healthcare Sector, MPI, this session will provide attendees with the information they need to successfully navigate the increasingly complex pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device regulatory environment. If you work in the health care industry, this is a session you can't miss! 


The CMP Conclave is one of the most affordable conferences for meetings professionals. At $450 for two-and-a-half days of education and networking, it's practically a steal! Your CMP designation demonstrates that you know the importance of investing in yourself; Conclave helps you continue to do it wisely. Register now and take advantage of hotel and travel discounts  offered exclusively for CMP Conclave attendees!
