On April 11th, a crowd of over 100 industry professionals, from MPI New England regulars to a number of new faces, gathered at Kings Boston Bowling and Entertainment for our annual Chairman’s Challenge event. Much of the proceeds from this event go towards the MPI Foundation. The Foundation fuels the growth and advancement of MPI members by providing professional development and career opportunities through grants and scholarships.


The event kicked off with a bowling tournament where we had a number of teams participate; suppliers as well as planners were spotted on the lanes. Among the new faces was the group from the Las Vegas Convention Bureau. Congratulations to Wynn for winning the top spot!


For those who didn’t bowl, there was a networking reception. Kings featured some of their well-known items: Baked Chicken Wings, Fried Mac and Cheese Bites and Southwestern Spring Rolls. The food quality is certainly not lost here! You can see why Kings has been featured on The Phantom Gourmet.


Aside from bowling and networking, there was also a raffle with over (30) exciting giveaways up for grabs. We would like to take the time to again thank our donors. The event would not have been as nearly a success without you!
