Three key team members of Messe Muenchen South Africa are among the elite Class of 2020 to have graduated from the first Certified in Exhibition Management® (CEM) programme in Africa.
AAXO, in conjunction with the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE), hosted the internationally recognised CEM programme in Africa for the first time this year. The CEM qualification is a globally recognised designation that demonstrates the highest professional standard throughout the exhibitions and events management arena.
Messe Muenchen South Africa, constantly striving to improve on excellence, nominated three team members to participate this year. All three, Betty Sichivula – Project Director, Dain Richardson – Senior Exhibition Manager, and Wessel vd Linde – Director of Finance and Operations, graduated.
Congratulating the team, Suzette Scheepers, CEO of Messe Muenchen South Africa, says: “Despite the fact that our team members have decades of exhibition experience under their belts, we believe it is important to stay abreast of changing trends and continually refresh our knowledge through ongoing training and development. Achieving the CEM qualification shows that our team members are up to date and aligned with international best practice.”
