Meeting Professionals International (MPI) announces a date change for the World Education Congress (WEC) Grapevine to November 3-6, 2020. WEC has been rescheduled to the new November dates from its original June timing, in order to accommodate travel guidelines and attendee safety resulting from the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

The event, which had more than 2,500 attendees in 2019, offers education and networking opportunities. It will feature an innovative format with multiple education tracks highlighting topics of interest among the community. The 2020 edition will feature a new focus on learnings, lessons and initiatives related to COVID-19. WEC will be a hybrid event—both an in-person and virtual experience. It will carry a virtual offering for a parallel experience to onsite.

“We are excited to announce our new dates for WEC Grapevine in November. This experience will be a rallying cry for our meeting and event community to Reunite for Recovery,” said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI. Registration for in-person attendees includes a ticket to MPI Foundation’s Rendezvous. Attendees are also eligible for a refund in their event fees, with flexibility in applying them to WEC Las Vegas in 2021.
