I like to spread the word when I hear good things about Houston.
Just last week, Meeting Planners International announced it would hold its annual conference here in February 2008. While that’s 18 months or so from now, what’s significant about this is that MPI’s annual conference draws THE group that is most influential in deciding where businesses and organizations go for their meetings and conferences.
According to an article in the Houston Business Journal, statistics from MPI show that approximately 20 percent of meetings represented at the group’s conventions will book an event in the host city within three years.
Kudos to Houston for landing this gem.
