IACC, the global association representing the top one per cent of small- to mid-sized conference and meeting venues, has entered into a strategic partnership with MPI, the largest global meetings and events industry association.
IACC and MPI will collaborate on a number of initiatives including thought leadership discussions, as well as the creation of content and campaigns that reinforce equity, diversity, inclusion, and wellness as key components to a successful sector.
Together, the organisations will share education at their live events and develop online learning platforms to deliver resources in the form of blogs, webinars, and best practice briefings.
This means that IACC will be able to engage with MPI’s network of more than 90,000 meeting and event professionals across 70 chapters, which highlights IACC’s commitment to supporting every one of its 400 member venues with advanced research and resources, as well as networking opportunities.
Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI, said: “This formal alliance with IACC creates a strong platform for us to work together, build on and share their deep industry insights, collective community trust, and wealth of robust resources which, through shared collaboration, will ensure the promotion and growth of the industry.”
