Meeting Professionals International's (MPI) Cascadia conference is a joint event produced by the Oregon and Washington State Chapters of MPI held annually. The conference features educational breakouts, networking and a tradeshow. The event also includes pre-conference activities in the region. Recently the conference was held in Portland and had record attendance with more than 240 attendees and featured a great ratio of suppliers and planners.
Tacoma will host the conference in 2012. We are thrilled to welcome MPI members to the Hotel Murano and the Greater Tacoma Convention + Trade Center for the conference next March. The theme for the conference is ?HeART of your meeting? and will have an art focus. This will be a great opportunity to showcase the area to regional meeting planners and suppliers.

Spring in the Pacific Northwest means gardens bloom, waterfalls thunder in the mountains, cherry blossoms begin to open, farmers markets kick-off with fresh produce, and... the weather is incredibly unpredictable.
