Spring Back to Business

May 26, 2022 @ 4:00 pm6:00 pm PDT

What do two of the best business events industry organizations have in common? Amazing leaders, innovative culture, comradery, diversity – you say? These are all true, but what makes these characteristics possible is our phenomenal members, and it’s time to get to know one another in a new and innovative way.

Please join MPI Potomac and PCMA Capital Chapter as we spring back to business with our first ever “Edu-networking” event.

Thursday, May 26th, 2022
4pm-8pm, EDT
Omni Shoreham Hotel

We’re all feeling a little rusty these days when it comes to networking at business events. Let’s get back to basics with a short presentation and panel discussion on member engagement and networking.

Then apply what we’ve learned during our interactive networking session. We’ve pulled out all the stops with garden games on the hotel patio and gardens, cocktails, demonstrations, and plenty of time to meet new people and catch up with those we haven’t seen in a long time. We even have a few surprises up our sleeve.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to engage members that have canceled their membership or stopped participating in their respective chapters.
  • How to network in our next normal business environment
  • What have we learned from virtual networking and how can it enhance in-person networking of the future?
  • How networking is now different for planners and suppliers and what can be done to strengthen relationships.

Register as a Supplier Plus and your registration includes you and two planners.

Want to attend but don’t have the funds?  Let us know and we can find you a sponsor. Please contact MPI Potomac at [email protected] or 202-422-5186 to be added to the list.
