Exciting times are ahead with Meeting Professionals International’s annual World Education Congress in August.

The event is slated for Aug. 1–Aug. 4., and while that seems ages away, the time is sure to come quickly; summer—as it always does—will fly by.

The event gives attendees a chance to broaden their industry knowledge, network with peers and be exposed to industry opportunities. There are a number of formal and informal face-to-face activities for attendees to learn and meet and greet.

There also are a number of signature events, including an opening night celebration at Pier 48, the RISE Awards Luncheon and the Closing Night Celebration at City Hall. MPI has a number of activities planned, and there will be something for everyone at their national events.

Taking place in San Francisco at the Moscone Center West, registration is at a lower rate until June 18—so it’s time to sign up now.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or an early careerist, WEC give you the knowledge and experience you need to further your career. 

Anyone who has spent much time in the meetings and events industry knows that the people involved tend to be a social bunch. That’s especially true for the industry associations with chapters in Colorado. It was hard to keep these crews contained during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s nice to see association gatherings back in action, ranging from happy hours and education sessions to annual galas.

Thank a destination that is hosting your group and have a teambuilding activity all wrapped in one. Here are a variety of groups to plug into for projects involving trails, historic places, waterways, and open space. 

The City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks hosts one-day volunteer projects. Spend the day constructing or maintaining a nearby trail for Boulder locals and visitors alike to enjoy.
