TORONTO – Toronto’s Ryerson University is the newest location for a MPI Global Training Center, according to an announcement from Meeting Planners International. An integral part of MPI’s Global Training, the Center delivers elevated content on a local level for meeting and business event professionals.
During the next two years, MPI anticipates partnering with at least 14 to 15 educational institutions worldwide.
“We are rapidly expanding our available locations for individuals in the meeting and business event industry to receive hands-
on education at the local level,” said Didier Scaillet, chief development officer for MPI. “Ryerson University brings more than 50 years of hospitality and event management education experience to the table, meeting key selection criteria and making it a perfect fit as an MPI Global Training Center.”
One of the deciding factors for MPI, when choosing a Global Training Center, is the prevalence of a robust business or management school. This decision is based on meetings and events needing to be viewed as a business performance tool to enhance communication, motivation and learning. MPI partners with schools and organizations, such as the Ted Rogers School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, to provide training programs that will enhance meeting professionals’s business skills at all levels.
The MPI Global Training Center for Meetings and Business Events at the Ted Rogers School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Ryerson University will offer a series of certificates and certifications that will allow meeting professionals to accelerate their career development by learning new, relevant skills.
