In two weeks, I’m headed to Indianapolis (where I was born and raised) for MPI’s World Education Congress (WEC18), and I can’t wait. Not only will it be nice to see Indy all decked out for the convention, but I will love seeing how the world receives my hometown.

The last time I attended the congress, it was in Vancouver, B.C. This year, organizers promise an experience unlike anything we’ve seen before. On the Saturday before the conference, I’m planning on going on a behind-the-scenes tour of the WEC Villages as they’re being constructed. The villages include the social village (which will have puppies to cuddle, so I’m pretty sure you will be able to find me spending quite a bit of time there), the experiential village, the leadership village and the innovation village. I’ll be sure to share photos for those of you who won’t be able to make it!

The educational sessions look amazing, and I’m particularly excited to hear keynote speaker Mel Robbins. I’ll be providing updates while I’m there so keep an eye on our social media. So who’s with me? If you’re going, shoot me an email at teresa.kenney@tigeroak.com.

The Vancouver Convention Centre (VCC) is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and it definitely has a lot to celebrate. Since adding its west building, which tripled the facility's capacity, the VCC has welcomed more than 9 million guests from around the world and generated more than $2.4 billion in direct spending for British Columbia.
