MPI and the UK Centre for Events Management are to stage CMP Boot Camp Live at the Conference and Hospitality Show.

CMP Boot Camp Live is billed as a unique training experience that combines knowledge in 10 domains key to becoming a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP). Taking place at the first direct Arena in Leeds on 25-26 April, this year marks the first time that the Boot Camp will be delivered in the north of England.

Jackie Mulligan, VP Education for MPI UK and Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Boot Camp Live to the Conference and Hospitality Show in Leeds. It is a fast track way to gain the necessary hours and the ideal level of education that directly benefits business and gets people on track to becoming Certified Meeting Professionals. The connection to the show means attendees will also be able to conduct business at the same time.”

Emma Cartmell, MD of show organisers CHS Group, said: “Everyone is so ‘time poor’ these days, so the Boot Camp offers organisers a great way to combine gaining essential knowledge with attending CHS to source new suppliers, network and conduct business. We have a great relationship with MPI and the UK Centre for Events Management and we are thrilled to be working with them to incorporate this prestigious education experience into the show.”

The CMP Boot Camp Live Experience involves practical and on site exercises designed to provide insights, best practices and approaches for managing events for the events sector. The event covers topics including strategic planning, financial management, HR, event design, project management and marketing. The two day version of the Boot Camp has been delivered in the UK, Spain and Japan.
