Meeting planners International South Africa Top Event Organisers


Meeting Planners International is a newly created Pty (Ltd.) company capitalising on the conference & event management experience from MPI Conference & Event Management previously known as RPB Conference and Event Management and the marketing and advertising experience of a few brilliant individuals.

If you require a high-impact and exciting conference or event that will resonate long after in the memories of your attendees and leave the right impression for you business, allow us to get involved.

MPI is a Conference & Event management company based in Pretoria, South Africa, on the doorstep of Johannesburg. We provide an outsourced option, or an extension to your own event management team. In addition to this we provide event logistics, production and communication solutions for all your event needs.



MPI strives to become a leading Conference and Event Management company within South Africa; consistently providing the highest possible standards in conference and event management to our clients by providing real value added service and dedicated personal attention that exceeds all expectations.

In so doing, we wish to contribute to the socio-economic upliftment of our country while creating global recognition of our geographic region and become recognised as an authority in our field of endeavour.



Meeting Planners International (MPI) unequivocally states its commitment towards the transformation process in South Africa. We do not see ourselves as functioning in isolation, but rather as an integral part of a greater structure that should constructively work towards ensuring a fulfilling life for all South African citizens. We endeavor to forge partnerships with Black Economically Empowered companies and also within our own structure create the opportunity for Historically Disadvantaged Individuals to grow and develop into competent leaders in the industry.


The principles of transformation are embedded in our culture and management and staff alike are encouraged to continuously seek and develop opportunities to contribute towards this important cause. Currently, the company is moving forwards on the transformation path, working towards total compliance with BEE regulations, and completing its BEE scorecard to ensure that historically disadvantages individuals, people with disabilities and women are actively involved in the day-to-day running of the company. We seek Joint Ventures, affiliations and partnerships with companies that are also committed to constructively and actively working towards the ideals of transformation in South Africa.



We recognise and embrace the responsibility to contribute towards the upliftment and development of individuals as well as society as a whole. We are touched by the plight of local communities that face the hardships of poverty, unemployment, crime and violence. In lieu of this we commit our resources to alleviating these situations and provide an alternative. We also forge mutually beneficial relationships with other business entities and strategically provide a direction and focus for worthwhile community development efforts.


Our Community Involvement projects that forms part of the company’s activities aims in the long term to benefit community development in SA by establishing long-term partnerships with NGOs that are actively involved in this type of work. The structure of these partnerships can involve any of the following:

  • Training initiatives
  • Financial assistance
  • Assistance with other essential resources
  • Volunteer work
  • Promoting the NGO cause through linking with the network’s marketing and publicity campaigns


Skills Transfer, Development & Learnerships

Skills transfer and development is more than our duty or responsibility, it is something we feel passionate about. Meeting Planners International (MPI) wants to be a solution provider that produces life long learners that can effectively and willingly contribute towards the overall development of the country.

The aim of Learnership is to supply individuals with a work-based route to nationally recognised qualifications on the NQF. In this regard, Meeting Planners International (MPI) aims to use Learnerships to give individuals the opportunity to develop their work-based skills completely and effectively.

We specifically focus on recruiting and developing individuals to become competent and fully qualified skills development facilitators through our Learnership programmes.

We aspire to assist other organisations and small businesses to grow and ultimately, in their turn, be able to do the same.
