MPI Foundation's fundraising 'Rendezvous' night took place last night at the Hard Rock Cafe Istanbul.

The welcome reception to kick off the event took place at the 1001 Direk Cistern on Sunday (23 February) with entertainment from dance group Fire of Anatolia.

The closing session used a 'Flash Point' format, where speakers each spoke for 15 minutes.

Delegates heard from entrepreneur and meetings expert Ruud Janssen on 'Business modelling tailored to suit the business of live events'; and Jackie Mulligan, a principal lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan University, on 'Transformational lessons from the future'.
