Jenny Jeong - “When We Meet, We Change the World - 2014 World Education Congress”


Jenny Jeong

Jenny has travelled from her home in South Korea to study Tourism and Hospitality Management - Event Planning at Humber Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning in Canada.

As part of my programme in Tourism and Hospitality Management - Event Planning, I recently had the opportunity to go the World Education Congress in Minneapolis, USA, as a future leader of Meeting Professionals International (MPI). MPI is the meeting and event industry’s largest global community and helps members to network, experience unique events, and learn from each other. I was lucky to receive a Future Leader Forum Scholarship from the MPI Toronto Chapter and attend the World Education Congress in Minneapolis.

I joined MPI with some of my classmates last year. MPI gave me numerous opportunities to network with event professionals and learn from guest speakers. At the WEC2014 conference (August 1-5, 2014), I met 25 leaders from different cities in USA. It was an incredible experience to meet people who share common goals and a passion towards hospitality and events industries.
