May 15, 2024

    The countdown to WEC 2024 is on, and our team can’t wait to attend this “event for event experts.” Stop by the Community Brands booth #TT2, where Scott Andryk and I (James Rochford) will be ready to introduce you to our integrated and connected network of event tech solutions that streamline the attendee experience.   

    Here are some other reasons why we hope to see you at WEC 2024… hosted at the Kentucky International Convention Center from May 19-22, 2024. 


    Why attend WEC 2024?  

    In addition to the opportunity to connect with Community Brands in person at booth #TT2, along with other industry leaders, the entire WEC experience will be a carefully curated feast of networking, education, and keynote speeches. The city of Louisville is the ideal setting for entertainment, music, food, and fun.  

    We’re especially geared up for agenda highlights like an unforgettable Churchill Downs experience and President’s Dinner, honoring Steve O’Malley, COO – Business Events Solutions at Maritz. Of course, we love any opportunity to dance while doing good, which is exactly what we’ll be doing at Rendezvous, to benefit the MPI Foundation, before signing off downtown at 4th Street Live.  

    For more than 50 years, WEC has pioneered innovation in the events industry and welcomes return attendees year after year, thanks to its 95% satisfaction rate, not to mention programs like this…  


    Meet MPI’s Hosted Buyer Program  

    The ultimate business dinner, MPI’s Hosted Buyer Program pairs pre-qualified planners—with real buying power— with the suppliers that can turn their event ambitions into realities. In addition to immediate impacts to your budget, you can also anticipate forging business relationships that will only grow stronger with age.  

    Get this! Those accepted into the Hosted Buyer Program have the added perk of enjoying the WEC Louisville experience, free of charge. Top-notch education complemented with the ultimate supplier connections? It’s the perfect recipe for career advancement.   

    For extra fun — and the chance to get to know everyone as people before professionals — this year’s Hosted Buyer Program will kick off at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. Batter up!
