MPI Expands 2011 WEC Hosted Buyer Program

Due to increased demand and exceeding planned enrollment, Meeting Professionals International (MPI) announced today that the World Education Congress (WEC) Hosted Buyer Program is expanding access for suppliers and planners by 30 percent. 

“This year we re-designed WEC with a new marketplace approach that would provide more face time,” said MPI Director of Events Bridget Sypolt, “It’s exciting to see 2,600 appointments currently booked in our program, and we’re proud to be able to expand by 30 percent. This will insure our program participants have the ROI their businesses demand.”

WEC delivered a 342 percent attendee ROI in the 2010 audit conducted by MeetingMetrics.  Sypolt and her team speculate that the 2011 conference in Orlando July 24-26, may deliver even higher results based on the growing supplier demand for access to the hosted buyer program which traditionally yields a higher rate of closing RFPs and building business relationships.
