The International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) and the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (EI) are partnering to provide IACC’s members with targeted educational and professional development resources.
The partnership aims to build on both organizations’ strengths to provide educational opportunities for conference-centre operators and meeting planners. The Educational Institute will work with IACC to develop conference-center-specific, customized materials and review current EI educational and training materials that could meet the needs of conference centres. IACC is also interested in working with EI to develop online learning and professional certification programmes for its members.
“This is a win-win arrangement for EI and IACC, both of which share a strong commitment to professional development,” said Roy Kennington, EI’s president and COO.
