The Larry Lee Memorial Scholarship is a result of cooperation and financial support of friends and business associations that operate within the MPI Foundation. The Foundation has set up the programme to commemorate Larry Lee, a professional of the meetings industry as well as COO and founder of Encore Productions, who died in December 2011. The programme ensures scholarships for students who want to participate in IMEX America and is meant to boost the opportunities offered to young leaders on the threshold of their careers in the meetings and events industry.
