A new advisory board has been formed to assist organisers responsible for healthcare events.

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has devised the MPI-MD initiative to support and promote medical meeting professionals through education, career development programs and resources. The association has also added more healthcare-themed topics to the line-up at its World Education Congress (WEC) in Atlantic City in June.

A combination of agency, in-house and supplier representatives make up the board, including Bayer Healthcare, Maritz Travel, BCD Meetings & Events and Hilton Worldwide

“Medical meeting professionals operate in a very complex regulatory environment and as a result, this segment of our membership has campaigned for more specialized training and resources,” said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI.
