Meeting Professionals International (MPI) announced today that it recently presented the Certificate in Meeting Management to forty-seven meeting and event professionals around the world. The certificate and resulting designation recognize the strategic decision-making ability of industry leaders to manage and deliver exceptional meetings and events that drive organizational success.
“The Certificate in Meeting Management has been valued by the meeting and event industry since its inception in the mid-1990s. By earning the certificate and designation, these forty-seven leaders have made a significant investment in their professional development,” said Paul Van Deventer, president and chief executive officer of MPI.
In December 2013, MPI and the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) announced that they joined forces to create the updated CMM Designation Program, which is an evolution of the prestigious Certificate in Meeting Management program. The new program provides the first and only collaborative designation for both meeting and travel professionals, and features an intensive business management study program led by highly esteemed university professors from renowned business schools.
“CMM has been and will continue to be a highly accomplished designation, and through this partnership with GBTA, the value of the designation will be recognized beyond the meeting and event industry,” explains Van Deventer.
