Oct. 10 will be known as “Smart Monday” in Las Vegas, thanks to IMEX America, which is partnering with Meetings Professional International (MPI) to offer a bonus day of education for senior-level meeting planners and suppliers.
On the day before IMEX America officially opens, the MPI-sponsored MeetDifferent Day of Education & Innovation will feature educational sessions on topics such as strategic meeting management, CSR, globalization and future trends. The event is free of charge to IMEX America registrants.
Other industry associations also will be providing educational content during Smart Monday. The International Association of Exhibitions and Events will offer its CEM Professional Designation Learning Program, covering strategic planning and management, for $215 per person. ASAE: The Center for Association Leadership and the International Congress and Convention Association are teaming up to present IMEX America Association Day, an afternoon of education targeted to association planners, free of charge.
