The association will collaborate with the Grapevine Convention and Visitors Bureau to host the conference, which is scheduled from 6-9 June 2020 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.

WEC is MPI’s signature event and attracts more than 2,000 attendees annually, including corporate, third party, and association planners, suppliers, students, industry faculty and more.

"We are elated to partner with the Grapevine CVB to bring WEC to Grapevine in 2020," said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI.
