bXb Group, LLC has announced the addition of Meeting Professionals International (MPI) as a founding industry partner of its premier B to B Events Industry Network on BOB.tv – Best of Business.
MPI joins the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), Center for Exhibition Research (CEIR), International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE), Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) and Virtual Edge Institute (VEI), in collective support of BOB.tv, an online platform under development that will aggregate quality business content and community in a variety of BOB.tv Industry Networks over time.
In turn, BOB.tv will extend the participating partner associations’ education content and other industry content online beyond their current communities. As a result, this collaborative effort will lead to broader reach and enhanced membership value for the founding partner associations as well as an elevated awareness of the meeting and event industry in the global business community.
“By joining this exceptional collaboration, we are furthering our commitment to delivering value through education and community to MPI members and the broader meeting and event industry. We believe our 20,000 members and corporate partners will realize tremendous benefits from BOB.tv, which is shaping up to be a unique and enriching online platform,” said Kevin Hinton, Immediate Past Chairman of MPI.
BOB.tv will launch with its first network, the BtoB Events Network, at the 2013 ASAE Annual Meeting & Expo, which will be held August 3-6 in Atlanta.
