Relevant, provocative and award-winning are just a few terms that describe The Meeting Professional®, the member magazine of Meeting Professionals International. A term that resonates even more is member-focused.
Since reintroducing the publication as The Meeting Professional in 2013, we have focused on you, the member, throughout our content. From featuring a member on the
cover to our member profile (Who We Are) to showcasing members’ best practices, the magazine demonstrates its commitment to you in each and every issue.
Members rate The Meeting Professional as the top value of membership* and our success is the result of your valued input. While the magazine has gone through several name changes since its debut in 1980, we returned to our current masthead following a year of traveling the globe and meeting face to face with members.
In addition to the member focus throughout the editorial, we also introduced a cleaner design, reminiscent of a consumer magazine, and shorter stories that are easily read on-the-go while still addressing key industry issues important to our members.
Critics are also impressed with The Meeting Professional. The magazine has won more than 50 awards for design and editorial, including consecutive Gold Ribbons for Monthly Trade Association Magazine in 2013 and 2014.
MPI members deserve a magazine that shares best practices each month, giving them ideas for building a better personal and professional future. Thank you for sharing your voice in your member magazine, The Meeting Professional, and we’d love to hear more from you. If you know of a fellow member who is making an impact, have a story idea to share with members, would like to contribute as a subject matter expert or would like to comment on current topics in the magazine, send an email.
