Meeting Professionals International and Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International have announced the next phase of a new partnership agreement, the launch of a dual membership for suppliers in both associations. Through December 31, 2012, new and existing members can join both associations and get a 20 percent discount on combined membership.
The dual membership is the result of the strategic partnership MPI and HSMAI announced in July and initiated with reciprocal education sessions at MPI’s World Education Congress and HSMAI’s MEET National held each September in Washington, D.C. The goal of the partnership is to exchange professional development and training expertise between the two associations. Both have committed to identify opportunities for collaboration on initiatives that would bring the industry together.
