The Planning Committee of the Meetings Industry Euchre Tournament is excited to announce the launch of the 8th Annual Tournament on May 2nd, 2019. MIET continues to be an all-inclusive, industry-wide event, powered by CanSPEP (the Canadian Society of Professional Event Planners) and supported by leading industry associations. The tournament provides an opportunity for meeting industry professionals to connect in a unique and fun way with a proven history of successfully attracting a 1:1 ratio of planners to suppliers. The majority of funds raised will support cancer research to find a cure through the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, while also raising funds for the CanSPEP Education Fund. To date, as an industry, we have contributed close to $130,000 to the PMCF.
According to Sheila Wong, senior vice president of BBW International and Founder of MIET, “approximately 39 per cent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes. In Canada, cancer is the number one cause of death compared to other diseases. It’s difficult to come up with one person from the meetings industry who has not been touched by cancer personally or through someone they know and love. So what are we doing about it? We’re raising money for research so we can find a cure. This is why we started the Meetings Industry Euchre Tournament 8 years ago.”
