First modules to run in May 2019 in Singapore: new certified executive modular programme for the Business Events Industry in the region
This certified program is part of the “Asia Pacific Executive Development Programme” framework developed by SACEOS and supported by UFI. Both associations presented the new activity at the UFI Asia-Pacific Conference in Tokyo, Japan.

The programme will be an add-on for UFI’s existing educational offers, such as the Exhibition Management Degree (EMD), the Venue Management School (VMS), and the International Summer University.

“Educational priorities around the world are as diverse as the exhibition industry. As the global association for our industry, we are happy to collaborate with our partner associations around the world to bring just the right mix of programmes into specific regions. With SACEOS, we share the same values and objectives for education. Together, we will roll out a new collaboration model to support the excellence of the industry in South East Asia”, says Kai Hattendorf, Managing Director/CEO, UFI.

Building on UFI’s core programmes, SACEOS and UFI will jointly offer topical modules to raise the industry’s professional standards and enhance the mastery of skills. Joining forces will allow both associations to harness the collective strengths of both associations to deliver high quality education, talent development, and peer-to-peer exchanges.

The Asia-Pacific Executive Development Program was a specific initiative that was derived from the Asia-Pacific Community Building Manifesto that was formulated at the Singapore MICE Forum 2018. The manifesto is a bold commitment among like-minded stakeholders, like UFI, to con?dently harness the new forces of change in transforming the business events industry into a powerful platform for socio-economic, intellectual and commercial bene?ts for stakeholders and participants.
