Come join us for a lively panel discussion brought to you by the Meeting Professionals International – Kansas City Chapter as part of our first annual “Crossroads” Discussion, as it relates to both meetings and business travel.  Hear from experts on both sides, on how meetings and business travel intersect in our industry and how to leverage that as a buyer and supplier.

Then stay for a charitable activity – packing meals with The Pack Shack, sponsored by GBTA – KC!  Our goal is to pack 10,000 meals in one hour!  The meals will be provided to the Veterans Community Project, which builds specialized communities of tiny homes and provides onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying cause of Veteran’s Homelessness.  “Veterans Village” is located at 89th and Troost.  The meals packed on July 11th will be used to stock the cabinets of the 13 current homes as well as the future homes in Veterans Village.  They will also be used to support Veterans who are not currently living in Veterans Village but still need a warm healthy meal.  

Please stay and “feed the funnel!”
