A vision for an industry or for a group of enthusiasts?

As the sole MPI Chapter in the world, MPI Sweden Chapter has an own vision. As far as we are aware of in any case. The vision goes: “We make Sweden a pioneering country for meetings and events.” Perhaps one could raise one’s eyebrows at a national branch of a global organisation having a national vision. Or is that it? Not if one asks MPI’s Swedish board members.

We look upon it as the meetings industry in Sweden being in Sweden, with most of our members living off it. We compete on an international market with our product in the toughest possible competition from the world’s regions, countries and destinations. Can we, as sector ambassadors, propel our national sector to a leading global position, it is a win-win situation for all concerned, commercially as well as intellectually. And to really blow our own trumpet, we do it in a way that no other national organisation has managed in Sweden, or in other countries, namely by getting the entire meetings industry heading in the same direction.

This benefits MPI globally through creating a clarity and a goals vision over and above that which MPI stands for and which primarily is about developing individuals who are members and being a skills enhancer for the sector. Swedish MPI’s ‘model’ gives the members further added value and is a strong recruitment argument as we grow from 250 members to the next level of 300.

 

What does this entail?

  • We strive to get the sector’s organisations and official bodies behind our vision.
  • We involve the entire sector as partners in order to build an economic foundation.
  • We are in the process of creating a politician and media forum to educate these decision-makers.
  • We take on the role of petitioners to the Swedish educational institutions who will educate our future talent.
  • We are planning for the most innovative event ever in the meetings sector; the MPI Forum.
