ECM Summer School. The 27th edition of ECM Summer with at least 50 new students takes place in Istanbul from August 24-28th 2013. The ECM Summer School has consistently been the bridge to a successful career in the meetings industry. It has graduated 1,500 students - many of whom have gone on to become future leaders. Despite new technology and hybrid meetings, the winning formula has remained the same: a unique opportunity for young professionals, just entering the meetings industry, to spend three days with some of the biggest names in our business in an “old-fashioned” school. The faculty is not made up of academics but seasoned practitioners with a “tell it as it is” angle based on many years hands-on experience: Andrea Bauer (Vereint), Rémy Cregut (Montreux Music & Convention Centre), Nalan Emre (IMEX), Luca Favetta (SAP Marketing), Elisabeth Hansa (Austria Center Vienna), Cécile Koch (MIM Magazine), Cain Leathem (GB Fitness), Christian Mutschlechner (Vienna Convention Bureau), Michel Neijmann (IAPCO), Miguel Neves (IMEX), Olivier Ponti (Amsterdam Marketing), Denis Speet (ICCA), Anne Wallin Rodven (Oslo Convention Bureau), Tina Walspurger, (USI), led by the course leader Pier Paolo Mariotti, CMP CMM.
The Summer School has now qualified for CMP certification and every student getting a Summer School diploma earns 7.5 points for their over-all CMP certification. ECM will organize a press conference introducing the 27th Summer School among other new topics on May 21st at 10.00 at IMEX in Frankfurt, room Symmetrie 3, Hall 8.
