UFI’s Community Manager

What does a professional accreditation mean to you? To some it means recognition amongst peers, increased status within the industry, credibility for the exhibitions you organise or a personal feeling of accomplishment. Whatever the rationale, the search for educational experiences that enhance your abilities as an organiser is well worth the investment.

One great example is the UFI Exhibition Management Degree (UFI-EMD) programme. The UFI-EMD is a co-creation of UFI and the University of Cooperative Education in Ravensburg, Germany. For the very first time the programme will be offered in Bangalore, India (May – August) hosted by the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre.. In my opinion, what makes UFI-EMD particularly relevant and important is the scope of its curriculum both face-to-face and online learning which includes: Business, Marketing and Project Management as well as an in-depth look at market research, CRM programmes, Public Relations, Sponsorship and Event Logistics.

The UFI-EMD designation is recognized throughout the exhibition world as a prestigious accomplishment. For more information on the upcoming programme click here:
