#FutureEventProfs Conference Brings New Talent to Confex

The UK Centre for Events Management will be hosting #FutureEventProfs – a new events student conference at International Confex, Olympia London on Thursday 3rd March 2016 as part of the 20th anniversary of events management education.

The programme which has been designed by graduates and students, aims to nurture talent and provide students with inspiring insights into their future events careers.

Graduates from the last 20 years will be providing new students with an opportunity to learn about how they can make the most of their studies and how their education can help shape their career path.

Branding, research, creativity, professionalization and recruitment tips will be the focus of special Coffee Pods providing students with expert insights from industry leading companies Ashfield Meetings and Events, Zibrant, Grass Roots and First Protocol.

Thanks go to the official partner George P Johnson who are hosting the event.

Jackie Mulligan Principal Lecturer and Director of Enterprise at the UK Centre for Events Management, Leeds Beckett University, feels the event will provide invaluable experience “The conference fits very well with our drive at UKCEM to enhance employability for our undergraduates and postgraduates which we have been pushing forward for the last 20 years. The event will provide students from across the UK with opportunities to gain insider insights from industry and graduates on how to create, shape and make the most of their careers in this exciting, ever-changing and dynamic industry. It will also provide opportunities for industry leaders to inspire and engage new talent coming in to the sector.”
