Toronto to Host MPI WEC2019
MPI’s World Education Congress to Convene in Toronto
Recently named one of the 50 Best Places to Travel in the world in 2019 by Travel and Leisure Magazine, and one of seven cities National Geographic listed in their Best Trips 2019, Toronto is primed to host MPI’s signature education event, the World Education Congress (WEC), June 15 — 18, 2019.
An urban hub of innovation, there’s no better destination to host the WEC, than Toronto, when creativity, collaboration and community are the event’s central themes. While Toronto may be Canada’s largest city, it’s made up of some 140 individual neighbourhoods, each with its own unique flair and sense of community – from Greektown to Little Italy, from the Distillery District to Boy’s Town, the city may be made up of some 200 different cultures, but it is one large community proud to host some 2,000 meeting professionals from around the globe.
Education, as always is at the heart of MPI’s WEC. Hosted at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, at 600,000 sq. feet, Canada’s largest convention centre, WEC2019 villages feature interactive learning sessions on food and beverage, risk management, inclusive event design, and more. Subject matter experts from across a spectrum of disciplines take part in panel discussions and keynote presentations. Not to the missed, the networking sessions that show off the best of Toronto while bringing delegates face-to-face with industry peers and partners.
Before, after, and in-between sessions delegates are free to explore Toronto’s top attractions including the world-famous CN Tower, or the world-class Royal Ontario Museum (the ROM) or Toronto’s own urban Castle, Casa Loma. MPI members can taste their way through some 200 vendors at the St. Lawrence Market, named by National Geographic as one of the world’s best food markets, or sip and shop their way through the historic Distillery District’s one-of-a-kind boutiques, galleries and artist studios. Or, they can unwind on the water enjoying a cruise on Lake Ontario and some of the best vantage points to photograph Toronto’s signature skyline. Baseball fans can try their luck at getting tickets to the Toronto Blue Jay’s game – they’re taking on the LA Angels at Roger’s Centre on June 17 and 18. No matter how congress-goers choose to explore Toronto, they’ll discover the views are different, here.
