MPI Drives 200 New Members with Global Meetings Industry Day World Tour
Every association is looking for ways to boost their membership. While there are many effective tactics to do this, one method that recently proved its merit beyond doubt is hosting an engaging online event. After its Global Meetings Industry Day, a worldwide meeting that had presenters from several continents and attendees from even more, MPI saw new memberships from over 200 people. And, looking at the event, it’s not hard to see why.

Narrator: “With the help of the Mexico Tourism Board, which sponsored the event, MPI was able to achieve their goal of promoting the power of the global meetings industry. To execute this global online event, MPI turned to Digitell, their existing partner and the leader in online event production.
Narrator: “Digitell’s account managers worked closely with MPI and the technical teams of each location to ensure a seamless viewing experience.”
Kristi: “I’m so thrilled, and you look and you sound fantastic!”
Narrator: “On the day of the event, MPI’s Kristi Sanders kicked off the broadcast from Digitell’s in-office studio, welcoming the world to GMID.
Narrator: “Supporting her were Digitell’s event technicians, who were continually working to provide the smoothest possible experience. They coordinated speakers and presentations from several different time zones while working to create production value by combining live footage with pre-prepared graphics and videos.”
Kristi: “Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, and for being a passionate, engaged member of this meetings family.”
Speaker: “Thank you, Kristi.”
Speaker: “Thank you so much for organizing all this!”
