MPI will hold its signature WECs between June and early July, due to membership feedback regarding scheduling conflicts with summer holiday plans, school breaks, Canada’s Civic Holiday, and other industry events.

WEC 2017 will take place in Las Vegas from 9-12 July at the MGM Grand, the fourth time Vegas has hosted the conference. WEC 2018 will be held on 2-5 June at the Indiana Convention Centre & Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis, while WEC 2019 will take place from 11-14 June at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in downtown Toronto.

As previously announced, WEC 2016 will take place from 11-14 June at the Harrah’s Atlantic City Waterfront Conference Centre in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The association’s signature event offers education, business and networking opportunities and attracts more than 2,000 attendees including corporates, events planners and associations.

MPI’s president and CEO, Paul Van Deventer, said: "We are excited about each of these destinations and believe WEC attendees will enjoy them as well. Each year, MPI strives to enhance the education and programming we deliver at WEC, so we look forward to working with our host city partners to enrich the attendee experience in the coming years."
