The world of events has never been easy, the risk management associated with even the simplest of gatherings is enough to make some whither and fade away. Enter stage left COVID; enter stage right new technologies, opportunities for data collection and analytics. Oh, and BTW, the audience is full of legislative amendments and new data privacy laws that YOU WILL have to understand!

Whether you are concerned about event recovery, vaccination passports and/or contact tracing … or intrigued by the Pandora’s box of new technologies out there that allow you to understand your participants and sponsors in ways you never thought possible, this event will help you bring the script to life for a responsible recovery of your events.

For more information and to register.

We’re ready to host the MPI Toronto Chapter Golf Tournament on Aug. 25 at Royal Woodbine Golf Course.

We are limited to 80 golfers so register early to avoid disappointment. Tee times will be confirmed prior to the tournament. Due to restrictions, this will not be a shotgun start. Foursomes will be given tee times between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. A round of golf will take three hours (12 holes), and once off the course you will be able to have some time on the patio to relax and have dinner. Depending on restrictions at the time of the tournament, you may be limited in the amount of time you are able to stay.

How great to have the opportunity to get together with colleagues and friends for a fun afternoon on the golf course.

As we look toward the fourth quarter of 2021, the complexities surrounding the state of the industry evolving alongside the ever-changing dynamics of the global pandemic have left the meeting and conference businesses in a state of near constant flux.

In this comprehensive session, we will hear from industry advocacy groups and provincial representatives so that you can be up-to-the-minute with all of the latest and most relevant developments.

Following our main session there will be breakout opportunities for planners, suppliers and students to tap into the resources, tools and knowledge you can use to thrive in the latter part of this year.

Session agenda to be announced soon.


Mark your calendars for the upcoming Annual General Meeting followed by a Just Networking event. This is a MEMBERS ONLY event on Sept. 23 from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. Registration will open next week so watch your email for details.
