NEWS RELEASE

Meetings Industry Euchre Tournament (MIET 2018)
For immediate Release
January 29, 2018

The Meetings Industry Euchre Tournament, an annual event which raises money for cancer research, is excited to announce the transition of the 7th Annual Tournament to CanSPEP, the Canadian Society of Professional Event Planners.  CanSPEP and MIET have signed a memorandum of understanding which supports the integrity of the event and ensures profits will support cancer research to find a cure through Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

Founding member and Chair of MIET and BBW Vice President Sheila Wong states “It’s a win for our partners. By affiliating with a recognized industry association, sponsors and contributors will get in front of their target audience,  while supporting a cause that will save lives.”  Patricia Pearson of CanPlan and President of CanSPEP added “On behalf of the board and the membership of CanSPEP, we are thrilled to host this inclusive industry event. Our Past Presidents’ Council was searching for a marquee charity to support and fate played its hand.  We trust our industry will continue to support MIET as it has in the past six years and we look forward to working with our partners and colleagues to support cancer research.”

Save the date as this event will take place at Beanfield Centre on April 26, 2018. It is open to all members of the Meetings Industry at the CanSPEP member rate with an option for friends and family to attend as a non-member.  Beanfield Centre is returning as the venue sponsor. MIET thanks and recognizes Arlene Campbell, General Manager and Laura Purdy, Director of Sales and Marketing of Beanfield Centre who have supported MIET from the beginning and indeed, MIET may not have existed without their support.

New this year, from Eventmobi, a Trivia Game featuring sponsors and contributors on their versatile app, to add another layer of excitement to this amazing night.  The trivia game will take place prior to the start of the Euchre Tournament so the diehards need not fear that this will take away from their tournament play.

Coming soon is a new sponsor prospectus reflecting the climate our sponsors want at affordable rates for continued ROI.  Registration will open shortly!
