Our 2024 Annual MGI North America Conference was held at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront on May 15 - 17, 2024. The event was a success and facilitated the gathering of North America members, MGI Worldwide Executives, and International Committee Members, and our event sponsors from throughout North America and around the world.

Conference highlights

Industry leaders and professionals enjoyed the stunning backdrop of San Diego's picturesque waterfront, which served as the perfect venue, blending world-class amenities and breathtaking views with the convenience of being in the heart of the city. The choice of location, selected by North America members, proved ideal for both the conference needs and the participants' desire to explore the vibrant local culture.


The conference agenda was packed with dynamic sessions that fostered technical learning, best practice and idea sharing, and innovation. Attendees benefited from expert-led workshops, keynote speeches that provided deep insights into industry trends, and panel discussions that encouraged interactive participation. The opportunities to network were particularly valuable, enabling participants to connect with peers and industry leaders in a meaningful way.


Social events & networking

Social events organized throughout the conference allowed attendees to enjoy the luxurious comfort and hospitality of the Hilton while soaking in the beauty of San Diego. These gatherings were not only enjoyable but also instrumental in strengthening professional relationships in a more relaxed and informal setting. A highlight was the cocktail reception at the Portside Pier overlooking the beautiful San Diego bayfront.


Initial feedback from the attendees has been very positive, with many highlighting the seamless integration of a high-quality professional program with the exceptional opportunities to enjoy the local attractions. This year's conference not only elevated participants' knowledge and expanded their networks but also left them with lasting memories of San Diego's charm.
