The Association of Event Organisers (AEO) and the Virtual Events Institute (VEI) have announced a partnership that will encompass ‘strategic education and training’.
It will see the organisations sharing knowledge on digital and hybrid events to ‘help up-skill’ event organisers in the UK.
Chris Skeith (pictured), chief executive officer of AEO, said: “The partnership will ensure our industry has the skills and knowledge to deliver the very best virtual and hybrid events for their clients.
“Partnering with experts in this field allows us to offer our members the opportunity to grow their businesses and expertise.”
Sophie Ahmed, chief executive officer of VEI, said: “The VEI’s online learning tools and certification program will help AEO members to up-skill and grow their businesses and communities alongside the boom in virtual and hybrid events.
“We are delighted to be working with such a forward-looking organisation as we move towards the always-on future of events.”
