Industry trade show EIBTM and the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) are undertaking their annual search for young talent to join them in the annual Forum for Young Professionals (FYM) at EIBTM in Barcelona.
The two organisations are on the look out for 20 industry professionals, under the age of 30, to join them from 27-30 November at the trade show. Selection to the forum is based on country of origin, employment and a short essay on either the challenges faced by the industry, social networking or sustainability.
ICCA CEO, Martin Sirk, says: “The Forum is a unique opportunity for ambitious young professionals to join together to learn more about the industry and ICCA.”
Bethany Teulan from Business Events Sydney is a past FYP attendee and describes the experience as “an amazing opportunity to collaborate with, and learn from experts in our industry and other young professionals. The forum allowed me to build relationships with industry colleagues throughout the world, an opportunity I would have otherwise never had the chance to partake in”.
EIBTM exhibition director, Graeme Barnett says the initiative is all about the future and the leaders of tomorrow. “Together with ICCA we are committed in the long-term to help educate and develop the obvious talent that exists around the world,” he says.
Successful FYP applicants receive three night’s accommodation and a return flight to Barcelona (conditions apply). Deadline for applications is 10 September 2010.
