Give It Back

Maybe, I’m just partial, but I think the meetings industry outdoes itself every year in terms of philanthropic giving. I love this and it makes me proud to be part of this industry.


  • MPI Dallas: The staff will be making donations of DVDs to provide musical comfort to the patients at Dallas’ Children’s Medical Center.
  • MPI Global: MPI will make donation to World Vision humanitarian organization,  dedicated to tackling the causes of poverty & injustice.
  • Plan Your Meetings (PYM) has been sponsoring UNICEF at all events this year, as well as a Book Drive for the LIVE ATLANTA Show.
  • Some Fairmont hotels still participate in Room at the Inn, which assists travelers visiting ill loved ones in the hospital over the holidays.
  • A donation to the Children’s Miracle Network will be given if you book your holiday party at a participating Marriott hotel.
  • In lieu of client gifts, Rancho Valencia is giving to local charities who are focused on giving back to their hometown communities.

What are you doing to give back this year?

    Thank you for mentioning the MPI Holiday donation! We plan on giving over 70 DVDs to the Children’s Hospital this season.
