Global meetings industry organisation Meeting Professionals International (MPI) has awarded its highest distinction in the Rise Award Member of the Year. The recognition went to Wojciech Liszka – founder and CEO of Z-Factor, representing MPI Poland Chapter.

The prize was presented during the global MPI World Education Congress, which took place in Indianapolis from 2-5 June. Liszka was awarded the Rise Award Member of the Year as the second person in Europe throughout the history of the association.
“Involvement in building the structures of the local MPI chapter and many contacts established within the organisation helped me to introduce my own company on the international arena – especially when it comes to popularising the original Demand Outlook system,” saidLiszka, who has been active in the MPI structures for last 10 years.
“It is still difficult for me to believe that out of 18,000 people thriving on both sides of the ocean, it is me who has been chosen,” Liszka added.
