In an effort to strengthen its presence in Europe, Meeting Professionals International (MPI), has partnered with EIBTM to attract 30 new members to MPI`s nine European chapters.



According to the partnership agreement, EIBTM will pay for 30 planner memberships per year for two consecutive years (three members per European chapter for a total of 27, plus three at-large members). Tom Nutley, managing director of Reed Travel Exhibitions, organizers of EIBTM, also revealed that EIBTM will renew its commitment to the MPI European Partner Program for 2003-2004.



MPI welcomes the opportunity to grow our membership in Europe and look forward to expanding our partnership with EIBTM, said Didier Scaillet, director of European operations and global development for MPI. By encouraging new planner members to join MPI, there will be additional opportunities for suppliers seeking to conduct business with members of MPI`s $10.9 billion annual buying power network.



Over the last year, EIBTM and MPI have joined forces on a number of projects such as the MPI Technology Village @ EIBTM, a unique event featuring leading technology companies with expert presentations to educate meeting professionals about new business technology. Additionally, MPI has helped EIBTM to develop its premier education program and Association Program in Geneva at EIBTM 2003 last month. Tom Nutley also introduced the Opening General Session keynote speaker during MPI`s 2003 Professional Education Conference-Europe, 4-6 April in Berlin, and will play the same role during MPI`s 2004 Professional Education Conference-Europe, 28-30 March in Edinburgh, Scotland.



We are delighted to help MPI enhance their presence in Europe and define the value of meetings to the European business community, said Debbie Jackson, exhibition director for EIBTM. EIBTM is proud to be a partner of MPI, the world`s leading association for meeting professionals, and we will continue to look at new ways of working together.



Recently, EIBTM announced that Barcelona would be the new location for the next five annual EIBTM shows, one of the world`s leading meeting and incentive industry events. EIBTM`s switch from the current venue at Palexpo, Geneva, to the Fira de Barcelona also means the event changes from May to December. The 2004 event, the first event to be held in the new Barcelona venue, is scheduled for November 30 through December 2.



Since the April 1991 inception of its first European chapter, MPI Italia, MPI has been committed to enhancing the professional development and networking opportunities critical to the career advancement of European meeting professionals. Today, MPI has 1,200 members in its Germany, France, Denmark, Italia, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Belgium and United Kingdom chapters.
