MPI and MPI Foundation are stewards of many research projects funded by investors ranging from PSAV, Omni Hotels, and Jumeirah Group to the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority. The many products that result from these explorations into new trends, areas of focus, and needs for event and meeting professionals are part of a number of roadmaps that provide direction into this new territory. Join us for a look at some of the tools and discoveries that our staff, researchers and developers have uncovered in their exploration, and be part of the journey into new ways of thinking and looking at the future of the profession.

Learner Outcomes:
• Identify and consider the key themes and drivers that meeting planners have identified as important factors in shaping the future of the industry.
• Appreciate and begin to prepare for how trends are changing and informing meeting practice.
Discover how to utilize existing tools and content, along with feedback from multiple stakeholders, to create new and unique training for your event, organization or industry that prepares for the future.
