Miguel Neves to be recognised at MPI RISE Awards 2013

The VP of Finance at the Meeting Professionals International (MPI) UK and Ireland Chapter, Miguel Neves, will be recognised at the MPI Recognising Industry Success and Excellence (RISE) Awards as Member of the Year.
Neves will receive his award at the annual RISE Awards presentation and luncheon on 22 July 2013, during MPI’s World Education Congress (WEC) in Las Vegas.
Recipients are recognised for innovation, global transferability, impact and influence within the meeting and event industry. Neves was chosen for his volunteer leadership and influential work on communications, marketing and social media initiatives for the MPI UK and Ireland Chapter. He has also worked on the development of student-focused initiatives such as the chapter’s Young Achievers Award and the Vanessa Cotton Memorial Scholarship.
Currently serving as the VP of finance of the UK and Ireland Chapter, he also serves on MPI’s International Knowledge Advisory Council. He has been a member of MPI since 2007.
“In my short career in the meetings industry MPI has been instrumental in almost every aspect,” says Neves. “I have gained a great insight into the industry that I could not have done without MPI and the fantastic community that it holds. This award is a sign that I have also given back to MPI and in a small way helped move the association forward.”
Samme Allen, President of MPI UK and Ireland Chapter, says: “Miguel has been a great asset to the UK and Ireland chapter, having been instrumental in delivering key educational events and developing programmes for students, the future of MPI.”
MPI membership is comprised of more than 21,000 members belonging to 71 chapters and clubs worldwide.
