President's Message

Fellow Chapter Members,

I am so excited to be the President of “our MPI chapter” and look forward to the year ahead.

The 2019-2020 board has hit the ground running, working hard to deliver a fresh new look and feel to our programs. We have innovative & compelling content lined up this year with lots of new networking opportunities.

We look forward to having more membership involved this year. This is “our chapter."  It is what we make it and together we can make it work for everyone. Whether you are new to the chapter or a longtime member, there is something here for everyone.

 I look forward to seeing at an event soon!


Patrick S. Brochu

From meeting planners to suppliers, speakers to entertainers, MPI Sunshine Education Summit is where we gather to share innovative solutions and exchange new perspectives. Attendees gain invaluable knowledge and develop lasting connections as we find common ground. Sponsors and exhibitors make connections that open business opportunity. MPI SES is the point of convergence that brings us all to the same place: 

The best of the meetings world, right here in Florida.

So yeah, you get it.  You should definitely consider going. But let me give you some insight on why this is the right event for you.  ESPECIALLY if you live in the South East area of the United States. 

MPI SES gets such an elite concentration of Event Professionals in the same space over the course of a few days, you’ll find yourself reeling from the amount of contacts and education being dealt out in such a short amount of time AND SO CLOSE TO HOME!

TONS, a collaboration of MPI Tampa Bay, Orlando, North Florida and South Florida Chapters ensures connections throughout the state and across the South East are well represented with ample time to socialize, conceptualize and revitalize the soul of the event professional. Best of all, these connections are all within reach.  Which means your ROI is so much greater statewide without having to take out your passport only to connect with someone a couple of area codes away.

So, take aim at MPI SES and stay local.  Your shot is sure to make an impression on all your new found relationships and bring additional profits to you and the Sunshine State.
