ISES UK forges research partnership with University of Westminster

The International Special Events Society (ISES) UK Chapter is to partner with the University of Westminster to deliver Professional Practice, a major learning and research consultancy project. It is the first scheme of its kind between an industry association and academic institution, the association claims.
 
In keeping with the ISES education programme, the project starting this month will benefit both association members and event professionals of the future.
 
Postgraduate students at the University of Westminster studying for their Masters of Arts degree in Events and Conference Management will be tasked with investigating an issue or problem determined by the ISES member on their behalf.
 
James Morgan, ISES UK Director of Education comments: “Our industry is made up of small medium and large organisations all of which have resource constraints. Whether this is in terms of time or money, this partnership will provide our members with an insight into an area or issue in which they may find hard to resource. By taking advantage of this free of charge resource, members will be provided with the knowledge on how to be more efficient, profitable and professional so as to create competitive advantage for themselves and ISES UK as a whole”.
 
Claire Humphreys, Course Leader MA Events and Conference Management, University of Westminster, adds: “ISES is active in its support of events education and was a natural choice for the University when looking to develop our industry collaborations. The Professional Project is designed to provide a resource of direct value to companies in the events industry while developing the skills and employability of our postgraduate students.”
