As the foliage begins to change and the busy fall season is here, be sure to take this opportunity to turn your focus to your professional development, skills acquisition, and career enhancement and add the MPI New England Chapter Educational Institute to your calendar.

Please join us in historic Portsmouth, New Hampshire for our annual Educational Institute November 20-21st. Our program will be packed with inspiring keynote presentations and informative breakouts.  Mr. Jim Rooney, President & CEO of the Boston Chamber of Commerce, will kick things off by welcoming all attendees with a state of the “hospitality” industry address.  Together we will explore the trends in our marketplace and how we directly impact tourism in New England.  It’s an exciting time to be in events as our geographical environment continues to thrive!


This year, in a relaxed "Coffee Shop" setting, Planners and Suppliers will engage in meaningful conversations during the MPI New England Hosted Buyer Program. The program is designed to bring together suppliers with planners to discuss shared business opportunities. This year’s program will provide a unique setting to dive into conversations about how you can work together to meet all your events goals. Walk away with partnerships and knowledge to help your business thrive. The Hosted Buyer Program is on Monday, November 20th from 4:00PM – 5:30PM.


MPI New England is a Events Industry Council (EIC) Preferred Provider program. 

This year’s Institute is proud to offer CMP Clock Hours approved sessions, by the EIC. The MPI New England Chapter's Educational Institute is the most comprehensive learning event of the year. Wondering what topics will be addressed at the 2017 Institute?  We took notes last year and listened to your feedback! This year plan on learning more about diverse meetings, contracting, technology, decision making, event security, and even some personal tools to help in your professional and personal everyday life.
