The Solution Rooms will launch at the World Education Congress (WEC) from 23-26 July in Orlando, Florida.

The sessions at the Orange County Convention Center will be customised depending on delegates’ requirements and will be facilitated by speakers, as well as providing an opportunity to address their greatest challenges with peers facing the same situation.

Breakout rooms divided by topic will provide for delegates to discuss issues specifically affecting their work.

MPI director of programs Diana Rogers said: "The people in our industry are passionate lifetime learners, always willing to impart wisdom with those around them. Whether a novice or an expert, they have some best practice or latest tool to share, and the Solution Rooms at WEC are the platform to share while learning something new to bring back."

The concept of the Solution Room debuted in February at EMEC Düsseldorf, where more than 200 European professionals gathered to discuss their greatest challenges, broken into subject matter groups.

MPI conducted a study that showed the ROI of attending its previous WEC in Vancouver, Canada, amounted to a 340% return for delegates.
