Conference and Meeting Management – CEM Week

August 9 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

CEM: Conference & Meeting Management Principles

While planning and managing exhibitions and meetings share some common aspects, competent planning and management of meetings requires special knowledge and skills. Exhibition managers may be called upon to work closely with their organization’s meeting and education manager and should be knowledgeable about the essential aspects of meetings in all of their various formats.

After completing this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Identify different types of events and meetings
  • Compare education and programming formats
  • Explain adult learning theory
  • Select appropriate speakers for a program
  • List common event space set-ups based on meeting type and size
  • Describe basic requirements for conference related housing, travel and transportation
  • Prepare Event Specification Guides and Function Set-up Orders
  • Organize ADA- compliant and accessible meetings (U.S. only)

Registration fees for on-location courses and virtual courses in the United States are $299 USD members/$440 USD non-members (per course).

There will be an optional 30-minute study period followed by an hour for the exam. Those that are recertifying, not taking the exam, or taking the course as not part of the CEM program will end their day at 3:00pm
