Meetings and events professionals from around the world will soon gather in the Twin Cities for the 2014 World Education Congress. Organized by Meeting Professionals International, a long-established nonprofit association based in Dallas, the event will be held in the Minneapolis Convention Center on the weekend of August 2-5. For the keynote, author Deepak Chopra will delve into his concept of “wellness real estate” and emphasize the importance of the healthy indoor environments. Sam Richter meanwhile will show how to boost sales in today’s hyper-connected world, where buyers know your pitch before you deliver it. In the nuts-and-bolts sessions, harried event planners will get helpful pointers on licensing music, running audio-visual equipment, and more effectively managing email inboxes.
