Professional Exhibition Management (PEM) Course

Why you should attend

A successful exhibition is a powerful marketing platform for both the exhibitor and organiser. The fate of an exhibition is often determined by the depth of the knowledge and experience in the planning and management process. Do you have what it takes to bring a successful exhibition to fruition?
Knowledge and experience are both the currency of management; knowledge to understand the process of exhibition planning, and experience to manage the unforeseen. With a good repertoire of both, you will be able to deliver an unforgettable experience to the attendees.
The Professional Exhibition Management (PEM) programme is thus developed to deliver the essential concepts to professionals on how to plan, manage and market exhibitions.
Upon completion of the PEM programme, participants are awarded 19.5 Continuous Education (CE) clock hours. This can be used in the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) application process.
