MCI Joins IMEX and MPI to Support Growth of Future Leaders Forum

MCI has entered into a new collaboration with the IMEX Group, organisers of worldwide exhibitions for the meetings, events and incentive travel industry, and MPI (Meeting Professionals International) to support the Future Leaders Forum (FLF) which has been rebranded as the IMEX-MPI-MCI Future Leaders Forum.

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. The Future Leaders Forum consists of a series of special events hosted around the globe. In 2012, locations include Honduras, Korea, China, Australia, Poland and Thailand. 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.

Patrick Delaney, Vice President Industry Relations at MCI commented: "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. The initiative offers the mentoring and educational opportunities that will help to secure the future of the industry by producing a new generation of motivated leaders."

MCI’s involvement in the FLF Programme will leverage the support of its own internal learning and development body, the MCI Institute. Carina Bauer, CEO, IMEX Group commented: "The support from MCI, in addition to MPI, will significantly strengthen our goal to support the development of talent within the industry. Through enhancing students' understanding of the market we are able to equip them with valuable knowledge to guide them through their career choice and help them to flourish."
