#events MPI WEC 2015: SPOTLIGHT ON S BY SUSANNA FLORES F iguring out how to recap the incredible experiences at MPI WEC in San Francisco is no small task. As we thought about how to summarize WEC 2015, we first thought we would focus on the many incredible milestones achieved at the conference. Some of these include the 2,500 registered attendees (a 25 percent increase over the previous year) or the record set in the hosted buyer program, with 450 participants (12.5 percent increase). We also were impressed by the 140 18 @MPIGNY FALL 2015 education sessions, not even mentioning the awe-inspiring keynotes. Who wasn't choked up by Liz Murray's brave journey from homeless to Harvard or inspired by Levi's President James Curleigh to find your professional edge? The keynotes on the collaborative economy made us all realize that the likes of Airbnb, Lyft and the many other sharing platforms are, no doubt, changing our industry permanently. However, we felt like these noteworthy aspects of MPI WEC didn't tell the whole story. We wondered if the heart of MPI WEC lied in the incredible events that truly showed off San Francisco. We were certainly enthralled by Opening Night with its twisted carnival theme at Pier 48 next to AT&T Park. I don't think anyone who attended Rendezvous at the historic Fillmore had anything less than an amazing time. The Spazmatics kept the dance floor packed well into the night. And there was no denying that closing night left a lasting impression on us with City Hall aglow in lights alongside
