Both organizations are investing in MPIF to advance research in the Future of Meetings.

“These industry leaders and their investment to the MPI Foundation is a sign of their trust in our ability to advance the meeting and event industry,” said Didier Scaillet, chief development officer at MPI.

PSAV, dedicated to a three-year MPIF partnership, will benefit as the exclusive technology partner for the Future of Meetings initiative, and will financially support digital advancements at future World Education Congress events.
