This year will see the 31st ECM Summer School take place in Dresden, Germany, 26-30 August 2017. The renowned educational programme on the Meetings Industry will provide at least 50 new delegates with the basis and know-how to progress a rewarding career in the sector.

Ongoing education and professional training are crucial to face the continuing changes of the Meetings Industry. Since 1987, i.e. 30 years, the ECM Summer School sets out the background and context of the Meetings Industry (key players, exhibitions, press, social media, sustainability, clients, intermediaries, RFP and decision making processes) with a focus on European and international best practices. The set-up of the event enables maximum interaction between students and the experienced meeting professionals that compose the faculty. The format of the school also guarantees participants to meet with as many counterparts as possible whether for challenging speakers in plenary sessions, group work, networking or socialising.

Course content is adapted to staff who are just starting out in the sector and who quickly want to get up to speed, coming from convention bureaux, hotels, PCOs, DMCs, airlines, conference venues, congress centres, convention centres, exhibition centres and suppliers of ancillary and other products.

The faculty is not made up of academics but experienced senior experts with a “tell it as it is” angle based on many years hands-on experience. The faculty are all members/partners of ECM and give their time on a voluntary basis – a way of giving back to the Meetings Industry: Lone Alletorp Callard (Wonderful Copenhagen), Nalan Emre (IMEX Group), Luca Favetta (Professional Convention Management Association), Paul Flackett (IMEX Group), Cain Leathem (GB Fitness), Heike Mahmoud (Visit Berlin, Berlin Convention Office), Nicola McGrane (IAPCO), Christian Mutschlechner (Vienna Convention Bureau), Miguel Neves (IMEX Group), Dr. Julia Schellong (University Hospital Dresden), Christine Shimasaki (DMAI), Dennis Speet (ICCA), Anja Stas (FMCCA), Daniel Waigl (CIRSE), Anne Wallin Rødven (InspirAR) and Kerstin Wünsch (tagungswirtschaft) led by the course leader Pier Paolo Mariotti, CMP CMM (EURAC Convention Center).

The ECM Summer School qualifies for CMP certification and every student getting an ECM Summer School diploma is also eligible to receive 17.75 Clock Hours for their overall CMP certification.
