MPI Foundation and The Meetings Show Collaborate to Bring Rendezvous to London

The Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Foundation and The Meetings Show have formed an exciting new partnership that will bring the foundation’s signature networking and fundraising event, Rendezvous, to London for the first time. The event will be a key part of The Meetings Shows networking calendar when it takes place on 14 June from 21:00 to 01:00 at Under the Bridge, Chelsea, the award-winning music venue located in West London.


The MPI Foundation’s Rendezvous has long been held annually in conjunction with MPI events around the world including their World Education Congress (WEC) and European Meetings and Events Conference (EMEC). Funds raised from the networking events are invested in scholarships, grants and pan-industry research – all of which help secure the future success of the meeting and event industry. Proceeds from Rendezvous at The Meetings Show will directly benefit European projects within the meetings and events industry.


“We have been looking for strategic opportunities to globally expand the MPI Foundation’s Rendezvous brand. London is one of the world’s most vibrant and exciting cities, making it an ideal destination to start broadening the reach of our signature event,” said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI. “In addition, partnering with The Meetings Show provides an excellent opportunity to showcase Rendezvous with an established and well-respected industry event, benefitting the MPI community across Europe.”


The networking event is traditionally held at popular venues with great music, dancing and more, and is open to all meeting and event professionals. Tickets for Rendezvous at The Meetings Show are priced at £50 each, and proceeds will benefit the MPI Foundation in Europe. The sponsors for the event include The Meetings Show, London & Partners, VisitBritain, VisitEngland and VisitScotland.


“When the MPI Foundation approached us about this partnership, it was immediately clear that it was a perfect fit. As the UK’s premier event for the international meetings industry we have the widest range of domestic exhibitors as well as those coming from Europe and beyond to meet with buyers from the UK and more than 20 European countries,” comments Steve Knight, The Meetings Show’s Event Director. “This partnership allows us to support not just the MPI UK and Ireland Chapter but chapters across Europe, benefiting the whole of our community. Money raised will go toward the MPI Foundation in Europe to be spent within Europe on projects including research, scholarships and education – all causes that we are passionate about and see as vital to the continued growth of the meetings industry.”
