Visits and Events Partnership (BVEP) is to hold a professionalisation workshop
for the UK events sector.
The event, which
takes place on 22 February 2010 at Earls
Court will be attended by key associations and
stakeholders from the events sector.
It will focus on
areas such as the National Skills Academy,
continuing professional development, proposals for an Institute of Event
Management, the development of event management
degrees and Foundation degrees, and the benefits of work-based and e-learning.
The workshop will
be moderated by Peter Rand MBE, director of industry relations at Zibrant, and
is being co-ordinated by industry consultant, Tony Rogers.
Chairman of the
BVEP, Michael Hirst OBE, comments: “This workshop will play a crucial role in
the continued development of the UK events industry. It is also a
perfect example of how the BVEP is working to actively support its members and
the wider industry.”
