Improving venue management

New edition of VMS in Shanghai

Gwen Kaufmann, m+a - Monday, August 12, 2019    


The third Venue Management School (VMS) will take place in Shanghai this December. The programme offers students an unrivalled learning environment, networking opportunities, a final exam, as well as a gala dinner and a graduation certificate. The programme is taught in Mandarin and answers a call from many of UFI's members for the need for education programmes to help support the development of the Chinese exhibition industry and to continually raise the overall standard of venue operations. Key course modules covered by the three-day programme include: security & crisis management, leadership for venue managers, human resources, effective customer care, event operations planning, venue marketing for managers and much more. Once again, the programme will be held at the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre (SNIEC) from December 9 to 11, 2019. The programme is a joint initiative between UFI and the Venue Management Association (VMA) in Australia. UFI extends its thanks to SNIEC's General Manager, Michael Kruppe, for all his support with the programme.
