The Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program was launched in 1985 to enhance the knowledge and performance of meeting professionals, promote the status and credibility of the meeting profession and advance uniform standards of practice. Today, the CMP credential is recognized globally as the badge of excellence in comprehensive events management in the events industry. The qualifications for certification are based on professional experience, education and a rigorous exam. Client expectations for meetings are higher than ever and recruiters and prospective employers recognize this CMP certification in a growing industry.
While risk has always been a part of in-person events, the novel coronavirus pandemic has tested all assumptions we have made on risk planning as an industry. As events start to come back into live formats, rethinking the on-site event strategy and design is critical not only to surviving in the short-term, but for creating a sustainable model for the future.
This allows us to assess the current environment and map new ways to prepare your event strategy, design, execution, and evaluation – no matter what comes next. From risk management to venue protocols; contract clauses to user experience; food and beverage to marketing, this certification covers the areas most impacted by the pandemic to help develop and design well-informed, future-forward and safe events with confidence.
In today’s changing world, event & meeting management professionals are expected to have the skills necessary to plan and execute both live and virtual events. This certification is designed for industry professionals who are looking to build on their existing event management skillset and experience by learning the fundamentals needed to plan and manage virtual events.
