Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has acquired the assets of Plan Your Meetings, an Atlanta-based company that produces live education, networking events, a meeting planning guide, and digital resources for an audience of more than 90,000 non-traditional meeting planners, such as executive assistants and other business professionals with meeting planning responsibilities, it announced this week. 

According to the organization, the acquisition "strengthens MPI's portfolio of professional development offerings and supports MPI's strategic vision to be the first choice for professional career development for its members and the global meeting and event community."

MPI initially will manage Plan Your Meetings' product offerings as a separate business unit, maintaining the Plan Your Meetings brand name.

"MPI is very excited about this acquisition, which further extends our reach and influence within the U.S. meeting and event community," said MPI President and CEO Paul Van Deventer. "We look forward to connecting with more of the non-traditional planner market and helping this segment grow professionally, supporting MPI's ongoing efforts to elevate our great industry."
