MPINCC Annual Conference & Expo:


Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Moscone West, San Francisco 


One of the leading industry conferences is returning to Moscone West in 2018.  Produced by the Northern California Chapter of MPI, the Annual Conference & Expo (ACE), will be held in San Francisco on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.  Innovation will be front and center in multiple education sessions and on the tradeshow floor during this one-day event.

The morning is all about education, with sessions on such diverse topics as:

  • Innovation in Events
  • Tweeting in Crisis Situations
  • Millennials in the Workforce
  • Unique Learning Formats
  • Ways to Elevate Brand Experiences 
  • And much more. 

Experience the innovative meditation spACE: MPI Foundation Wellness Event.  Clear your mind, focus your breath, and make a difference for yourselves and others through guided meditation.  All proceeds benefit the MPI Foundation, supporting scholarships, education and more.  All donations are fully tax-deductible.

Returning this year is a combined Luncheon and General Session, which will feature Matthew Luhn most notably from Pixar, whose credits include Toy Story, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo among others.  He’s been training professionals from Fortune 500 companies on how to craft and tell stories, and will be enlightening us on how to tell our stories.  

The tradeshow floor opens in the afternoon, featuring dozens of vendors and venues.  You’ll learn about venues in different cities throughout California and beyond, wineries, entertainment companies, rental providers, and a host of other industry suppliers with whom you can partner on your meetings and events.

In the spirit of the show theme and the focus on new technologies, the expo floor will feature a “Tech Playground,” a chance for attendees to play hands-on with new technologies available to event professionals.

ACE O’Clock begins at 4pm, with drinks and bites available on the tradeshow floor, allowing everyone to network together, and celebrate the day.  

Mark your calendars, and to register for ACE 2018.  Brain cells will be stimulated as we “Innovate.Together.”
