    For 30 Years, the CSPI Annual Conference has brought together forward-thinking & thought-provoking education to Convention Sales Professionals.  This year as we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we have taken a giant leap forward to create an annual conference that takes everything that makes us great and adds more opportunities to combine business connections with your trip and take all of us to different locations alongside our partners at IAEE.


    • NEW DATE & Changing locations – We will be teaming up with IAEE’s Expo Expo! Each December moving forward.
    • Reduced Conference Pricing understanding everyone’s financial constraints.  This year we dropped back over $200 on registration – CSPI has not had pricing like this since 2014.
    • Connect Reception to include members from local chapters of MPI and PCMA to add customer contact and increase our already amazing networking
    •  Return of Bundle Pricing – Join or renew along with your annual membership and save even more $$

    The past year has brought many changes to all of us in the meetings and convention industry and we’ve all learned something worth sharing about transformationresilience, and the common good. With the best presenters, the best content, and the best networking, CSPI is excited to bring everyone back together face to face in a safe way to discuss their discoveries, grow professionally, and explore solutions to continuing challenges.

    What will our industry look like in the new normal? What lessons have we learned? What innovative strides have been made in our industry during these last couple of years? What do we need to do differently moving forward Will masks be required? What are the social distancing guidelines for an industry that thrives on handshakes and happy hours? And the most burning questions of all: Will virtual meetings and hybrid meetings ever go away?
