2017 SES: A Revitalized Event for an Energized Event Community

MPI is proud to present Sunshine Education Summit 2017 (SES), where the business of meetings and events showcases the resources, beauty and energy of Florida. Formerly known as Southeast Educational Conference (SEC), SES remains a cooperative effort between the four MPI Florida Chapters (Tampa, Orlando, North Florida and South Florida), and introduces collaboration from MPI Global. This conference demonstrates how Florida’s MPI community drives the meetings and events profession forward.

Sunshine Education Summit 2017 will feature cutting-edge industry education that addresses the hottest topics and issues affecting meetings and events professionals—at all levels—through learning styles that range from invigorating keynotes to interactive classes... to roll-up-your-sleeves collaborative workshops. It's education that's sophisticated, personalized and unparalleled at other industry events. You'll leave with renewed strategies for the ever-changing world of adult learning and the expectations of future meetings and events participants.

Beyond the clock hours, SES presents business and peer exchange opportunities throughout the conference. SES 2017's many networking functions will provide you with ideal settings to reconnect - and make new connections - with industry leaders, employers, suppliers and planners who can be integral to your success. In addition, our MPI Exchange Program (sponsored by Helms Briscoe) will pair qualified buyers with the best suppliers, resulting in bookings and business, both immediate and future. Planners accepted into the program are eligible to participate in exclusive SES classes resulting in industry certificates.

If you're looking for unique learning techniques, innovative strategies, distinguished education and creative networking events in an exceptional and inviting environment that can uplift your career, you've found it! SES 2017 is your opportunity to collaborate, connect and build camaraderie with Florida's best and brightest. It's the ideal convergence of ideas and business exchanges, and the perfect face-to-face experience for the face-to-face professional.

Sunshine Education Summit is the conference that's been revitalized for you. Be part of the momentum!
