IBTM has been granted preferred provider status from the Events Industry Council (EIC) for its Knowledge Programme at the event company’s IBTM Wired show.
Delegates attending the event, which takes place 28 June to 1 July 2021, can gain Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) points for each education session attended. These will enable them to accrue up to 20 hours of continued education over the course of the four-day event.
The IBTM Wired event will host both live and on-demand education sessions which will count towards the CMP points. Keynote speakers at the event include: Stephen Attenborough, who leads commercial activity for Virgin Galactic; Monique Morrow, senior distinguished architect for emerging technologies at Syniverse Technologies; CNN contributor and Atlanta radio host, Aaron Paxton Arnold; and rocket scientist turned award-winning professor Ozan Varol.
Michael Jones, event manager, IBTM Wired, said: “The IBTM portfolio is renowned for the quality of its education, and we are delighted that IBTM Wired has been recognised by the EIC as a preferred provider.”
Amy Calvert, ceo, Events Industry Council said: “The pandemic has without doubt seen event professionals placing a renewed focus on personal development and learning, especially when it comes to up-skilling in the digital arena. It is critical that high quality education is available and easily accessible and IBTM continues to deliver inspiring and relevant training for its attendees.”
