European Cities Marketing and London & Partners announced that this year will see the 33rd ECM Summer School take place in London, UK, August 24-28, 2019. 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 in the Meetings Industry is a success factor for future business, whether you belong to an important or second tiered destination. The ECM Summer School is an learning opportunity for all professionals wishing to develop their knowledge and skills required for a successful career in the conference, meetings, incentive and event industry. The course and content are designed for delegates working for Convention Bureaux, Tourist Offices, Congress Centres, Hotels, Venues and Airlines. The ECM Summer School is also ideal for those working or wishing to work for DMCs, PCOs, Meeting, Event Planners and Exhibition organisers.

Since 1987, the ECM Summer School sets out the background and context of the Meetings Industry with a focus on European and international best practices. The set-up of the event allows maximum interaction between students and the experienced meetings professionals that compose the ECM Summer School faculty. The format of the ECM Summer School also guarantees students will meet with as many counterparts as possible whether challenging and interacting with speakers and peers in plenary sessions, group work, networking or socialising. "It's a crucial task for top management in each organisation, whether it is a Convention Bureau (CVB), tourist board, congress centre, airline, hotel, DMC, PCO or meeting planner, to train every employee continuously." says Pier Paolo Mariotti, ECM Summer School course leader.
