Each year our MPI community comes together for the World Education Congress (WEC), and with what our industry has experienced over the past year and a half, this year’s event held even more significance in reuniting around what the future of meetings looks like – and of course, having some fun while we were at it!
Over 1,800 meeting planners gathered in Las Vegas and online June 14-17, with the majority attending in-person. It was my first time attending WEC, and boy, was I in for a treat.

However! Before I dig into event details and personal thoughts, I just wanted to give a quick round of applause for the incredible achievements the organization was able to accomplish, regardless of the difficult landscape. If you missed the event, read on for a quick peek!
