  • MEETING INDUSTRY SUMMIT - CANCELLED +

    PCMA/MPI Washington State Chapter Meetings Industry Summit has been cancelled for September of 2017.

    This decision was not arrived at lightly and after much thought, research and discussion, the boards of both organizations have determined that we will take a break from co-producing the annual PCMA/MPIWSC Meetings Industry Summit for the year 2017.
     
    Committee members would like to make clear they had a date scheduled at a venue but are not able to move forward with that location due to legal implications in the agreement. We recognize that time away from your office is extremely valuable, and as such, we feel it is not only our goal, but our responsibility to offer our members programs gatherings that will enhance your careers in the meeting and events industry. The joint Summit committee will regroup and review options for 2018.
     
    The committee would like to thank our attendees, vendors and sponsors who supported this event for the last 15 years. We hope to see you in 2018.
     
    In place of the Summit this year, MPIWSC is partnering with ESPA, ILEA, NACE and WSAE to bring you the Hive on September 28th.  More information can be found here.
