MPPIA’s annual group marketing trip to Los Angeles was a value added proposition this year due to the program enhancements enabled by MPPIA’s Western Economic Diversification project funding.

MPPIA member groups expanded on their usual outreach to major studio clients with the help of the Association’s recently retained LA representative Peter Wetherell. Meeting schedules were full and included a number of new contacts with independent studios and production companies.

In addition, MPPIA welcomed the LA production community to a client appreciation reception at Canadian Consul General David Fransen’s residence in Los Angeles. More than 100 guests convened for the ai???Friends of BC’ business networking reception that included execs from Turner, Warner, Disney, MGM, CBS Paramount and a slate of new independent production contacts.

Among MPPIA’s WD project activities in the first quarter of 2012 are follow up meetings in Los Angeles, as well as a member mission to New York.
