MCI joins Imex and MPI to support Future Leaders Forum

MCI has signed an agreement with Imex Group and MPI to support the Future Leaders Forum (FLF).

The global FLF programme is an initiative designed to encourage the best and brightest students to enter the meetings and incentive travel industry by offering education days, networking opportunities and internships.

MCI will now be involved in organising a series of special events hosted around the globe.

Patrick Delaney, vice president Industry Relations at MCI said: "We look forward to working closely with both IMEX and MPI to continue developing events that offer engaging, relevant and valuable content.

"Our goal is to ensure that young people come away from the event with the knowledge and experience to differentiate them from the crowd, something particularly valuable in an increasingly competitive jobs market."

MCI’s involvement in the FLF Programme will utilise its own internal learning and development body, the MCI Institute.

Around 900 students participated in the programme in 2011 and around 5,100 students have now gone through an FLF since its launch in 2003.
