DENMARK – MPI announces Host City for 2016 European Meetings and Events Conference
Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has selected Copenhagen, Denmark, as the destination for its 2016 European Meetings & Events Conference (EMEC). The association revealed its plans during the closing of EMEC 2015 in Kraków, Poland.
Next year will be the third time MPI has hosted a conference in the Danish capital. The association previously held its former Professional Education Conference-Europe in Copenhagen in 1998 and 2007. EMEC 2016 is scheduled for February 7 – 9, 2016, at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel.
“MPI is thrilled to return to Copenhagen,” said Paul Van Deventer (image), president and CEO of MPI. “In selecting the host city for EMEC, MPI works closely with our European volunteer leaders, strategic partners and Pierre Fernandez – the head of MPI’s European operations – to identify destinations that provide world-class infrastructures and facilities, are accessible for our membership and align with our culture to push the envelope in meeting design. Copenhagen excels in each of those areas.”
Copenhagen is one of the most popular destinations for meetings and events in Europe. The city has been recognized by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) for several years in its annual ranking of top convention cities.
MPI’s partners for EMEC 2016 include VisitDenmark, Wonderful Copenhagen Convention & Visitors Bureau, Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel and the MPI Denmark Chapter. To register interest and receive updates on next year’s conference, visit www.mpiweb.org/emec2016 .
