Convention Industry Council rebrands to Events Industry Council

The Convention Industry Council has rebranded to the Events Industry Council and revealed a new logo to correspond with its name change.

The change comes after a “rigorous” process to understand the needs of all organisations represented.

"As the leading organisation representing the wide variety of professions and professionals in the events industry, the board of directors recognised a need to refresh and refine our brand to better serve our members and members' constituents," said Susan Robertson, Events Industry Council chair. "Guided by a highly-skilled brand task force, the process has been incredibly thorough. We reached out to leaders and influencers on a global level to ensure everyone was aligned with the direction of the council."

The Events Industry Council will continue to power the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) programme, driving and advancing the education, certification and professionalism of the industry.

"Our industry is an exciting one, and it's an honour to represent so many strong organisations and professionals with the CMP designation," said Karen Kotowski, president and CEO of the Events Industry Council. "The new look of our CMP logo represents the fresh ideas and quality that each Certified Meeting Professional brings to his/her employer and clients. Our CMP designation is powered by the Events Industry Council, and we are proud to have that clearly displayed in the new look."

The Events Industry Council's 33 member organisations represent more than 103,500 individuals and 19,500 firms and properties involved in the events industry. The CMP credential is recognised globally as a badge of excellence in the events industry.
