MPI Academy Teams Up With Reposite to Launch AI Certificate for Event Professionals
Reposite, an AI-powered meeting and event planning tool, is collaborating with MPI Academy, the educational arm of Meeting Professionals International (MPI), to introduce the AI-Enhanced Event Professional certificate program for meeting and event organizers.
Set to launch in January 2024, the new educational program is designed to equip event professionals – including event planners, managers and coordinators, marketing and communication professionals, hospitality and venue managers, and anyone interested in leveraging AI for event design – with the knowledge and practical skills needed to harness the transformative power of AI for creating meaningful and immersive event experiences, according to MPI Academy officials.
“Staying at the forefront of industry innovation is not just an option; it’s a necessity,” said Jessie States, vice president of MPI Academy. “This certificate offers a roadmap to navigate the future of event planning. Join this groundbreaking journey, where knowledge meets innovation, and event professionals are equipped to shape extraordinary experiences with help from the power of artificial intelligence.”
The MPI AI-Enhanced Event Professional certificate offers the following:
1. Comprehensive AI Expertise: Providing a deep dive into AI best practices and demonstrating their applications within the meeting and event industry, this program offers participants a holistic understanding of how AI can revolutionize their event planning, supplier sourcing and overall workflow.
2. Hands-On Learning: Attendees will gain practical, real-world experience through interactive modules and workshops, ensuring they can effectively implement AI solutions to enhance event experiences.
3. Industry-Leading Instructors: Featuring expert guidance and insights from Reposite Co-founder Alexa Berube, the certificate ensures participants receive top-tier instruction to apply new knowledge to their everyday planning activities.
4. Networking Opportunities: The program fosters connections among event professionals, promoting collaboration and knowledge-sharing within the industry.
In this comprehensive certificate program, participants will acquire a strong foundation in AI and its relevance to the events industry. By the program’s completion, participants will have the skills to describe fundamental AI concepts, identify opportunities for AI integration in event design, employ AI tools and technologies for enhanced event planning, strategize for personalized attendee experiences through AI, analyze data-driven insights for event improvement and apply AI to a real-world event design case study.
Structured into six modules, the program starts with an introduction to AI in events and ethical considerations. It then progresses to practical applications of AI tools, personalization and engagement using AI, data analysis for data-driven decisions and culminates with a hands-on case study in which participants collaborate in groups to enhance an event using AI. The program concludes with final presentations, providing participants with an opportunity to showcase practical AI applications and engage in group discussions.
So far, four AI-Enhanced Event Professional certificate courses have been announced for 2024, with more details about the program, as well as other collaborations and initiatives from Reposite yet to be announced. Register for the course here.
