On Location: PCMA Global Initiative Extends in Asia as SACEOS Renews Vows

At the Professional Convention Managers Association's recent Convening Leaders conference in Chicago, PCMA and SACEOS (Singapore Association of Convention & Exhibition Organisers & Suppliers) renewed their vows to extend professional education and training across the Asia-Pacific region through their one-year-old partnership, announced at last year's event.
Deborah Sexton, PCMA president and CEO, cited the shared educational values and commitment to promoting the industry as central to the extended partnership while Janet Tan-Collis, president and CEO of SACEOS confirmed that PCMA members can expect consistency in the levels of service when venturing into Asia.

“Now the Asia Pacific region is much more aware of PCMA and is coming to SACEOS to learn and become [CMP] accredited,” added Tan-Collis, who is leveraging Singapore's reputation as a regional industry hub for international meeting planners wanting to establish a foothold into the regional market.

Sexton confirmed that the extended education worldwide is the result of the PCMA Global Initiative and that the "multi-platform education through PCMA's face-to-face events, virtual events, and Online Learning Center are providing the tools for people to be more successful when hosting international meetings.”
This continued demand on the part of PCMA members organizing events outside of North America (up to 75 percent of members) is being met by establishing the regional partnerships such as those covered recently by IMR - with Dubai, Oman, and the Best Cities Alliance – as well as the SACEOS partnership.
