Why should you attend WEC 2013?
Because CONNECTIVITY is the most important aspect of what you do.

The most important quest in business is to create and foster human connections. Creating high performance connections amidst today’s digital connectivity chaos is a combination of art, science and magic—and you’re tasked to do better than anyone else. At WEC 2013 you’ll find your connectivity inspiration.

You’ll explore what connectivity means and understand its effect on what we do as individuals and as an industry. Not only will WEC give you the knowledge to create connectivity for your clients and organizations, you’ll be connected to thousands of professionals just like you.

Each year, thousands of meeting and event planners, hoteliers, technology pros and other vital service providers choose to invest in the connections they make at WEC. The unprecedented value found within the relationships of the MPI community coupled with the world-class education leave a long-lasting impression on people and businesses.

In a world where we are asked to design and create ways for people to connect and create exceptional results, we need the connectivity that WEC brings. WEC has historically delivered attendees an average 308% ROI for their investment of time and resources – and 2013 intends to deliver on the precedent.

By evaluating the needs of our members and our previous attendees, MPI has developed a program that will deliver a balance of education in specialty planning sectors like government, association and corporate as well as provide more education in advanced and intermediate levels. Building upon 2011 success, WEC will also expand the special Saturday segments that connect attendees to intensive training for beginners and programs for professionals exploring certification.

The question remains, will you choose to face the challenges in the year ahead alone? Or will you connect to the professional network and the training that WEC 2013 can provide you in Las Vegas?

Whether you participate in MarketSquare, or sponsor our innovative Flash Point sessions,putting your brand up front means you’re more than a business card — you’re a business relationship.


MPI's MarketSquare is where attendees and suppliers can meet, greet, mix and mingle between WEC events and sessions. Own the hottest real estate around, a piece of America's Center throughout the conference. MarketSquare is ideally situated in the heart of all the action, just outside the daily session rooms. Stand out from the crowd: Tell your story, make connections and generate leads.
