MPI GCC Supports Meetings Mean Business Canada Print

MPI GCC Expresses Support for Meetings Mean Business Canada

MPI Greater Calgary Chapter is excited to announce that it will support this growing coalition of seior industry executives who believe in the power of a single advocacy voice for the Business Events industry in Canada.

The Business Events Industry Coalition of Canada (BEICC), founded in 2009 to advocate on behalf of the Canadian meetings industry, is the first to execute the MMB licensing agreement and has now rebranded as Meetings Mean Business Canada (MMB Canada). The MMB Canada board is actively reaching out to key industry stakeholders across all sectors of the Canadian Meetings Industry to transform the coalition into a proactive, well-funded advocacy movement with strong connections to federal, provincial and municipal governments.
