Things may continue to change in our industry and that’s why it’s more important than ever to get together and visualize the potential we have moving forward—for ourselves and for our industry’s future. MPI’s European Meetings and Events Conference 2021 (#EMEC) will be a highly interactive, chapter-driven, crowdsourced experience. EMEC’s award-winning design format will continue to lead with a focus on attendee experience.

As the business events industry sets its sights on a full recovery, now is the time to re-connect as professionals and rebuild our networks for the future. Join us as we come together virtually on 15 June, 2021 for MPI’s EMEC, the premier event for European event professionals.

Featuring collaboration-based programming, virtual meet-ups and learning tracks dedicated to your business and personal growth, EMEC’s programming promises a cohesive education experience that will show attendees how to make their future as a meeting and event professional. Guests will connect with existing and emerging markets to reimagine not only how to do business, but where and with whom.

Paul Cook, a producer, writer, researcher, speaker, facilitator, advisor and educator who specializes in virtual and hybrid events, will be producing EMEC 2021.

“There are a number of things that I am looking forward to about EMEC 2021,”
says Cook, a former president of the MPI UK & Ireland Chapter. “First of I am honoured to be invited to be the creative producer of such a flagship event. It’s a great responsibility and I am looking forward to bringing together a digital event that really helps MPI members succeed in their goals. There is a huge amount of change going on in the events sector and this event will help equip people with the skills they need. But at the same time it will also encourage them to think about what they want and what they can do for the sector. I am looking forward to working with the chapters, co-creating and collaborating as we go to deliver an outstanding EMEC Digital.”
