Congratulations to Regional Sales Executive Joe Marcy for receiving the MPI Rise Award, recognizing him as the Global Member of the Year. Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is the largest meeting and event industry association worldwide with a global community of 60,000 meeting and event professionals represented by more than 90 chapters and clubs in 19 countries.  Congratulations to David Cater, featured on the cover of China’s MICE Business Tourism magazine, and to the entire MCCVB Team for being awarded MPINCC Business Partner of the Year.  

On another international platform, I had the honor of accepting IMEX and Destinations International’s Global Ambassador award in Frankfurt, Germany for our global leadership in sustainability and destination stewardship.

Last and most important, thank you to all of you - the stakeholders - and to everyone who submitted their applications to serve on the MCCVB Board of Directors or on committees.  We recognize and value your continued leadership and support in sustaining responsible tourism - the catalyst in providing so many resident services.  We thank you.
