CMP Boot Camp Live for the Conference and Hospitality Show
A unique training experience that combines knowledge in 10 domains key to becoming a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) with live learning from behind the scenes will be coming to the Conference and Hospitality Show (CHS) at the first direct Arena in Leeds on 25th and 26th April. The CMP Boot Camp Live has been created by MPI and the UK Centre for Events Management and this is the first time that the Boot Camp will be delivered in the North of England.

Jackie Mulligan, VP Education for MPI UK and Ireland explains: “We are delighted to be bringing Boot Camp Live to the Conference and Hospitality Show in Leeds. The one and a half full days is a fast track way to gain the necessary hours and the ideal level of education that directly benefits business and gets people on track to becoming Certified Meeting Professionals. The connection to the show means attendees will also be able to conduct business at the same time.”  

Emma Cartmell, managing director CHS Group – the organisers of CHS said: “Everyone is so ‘time poor’ these days, so the Boot Camp offers organisers a great way to combine gaining essential knowledge with attending CHS to source new suppliers, network and conduct business. We have a great relationship with MPI and the UK Centre for Events Management and we are thrilled to be working with them to incorporate this prestigious education experience into the show.”  

The one and a half day intensive and interactive CMP Boot Camp Live Experience involves practical and on site exercises that are designed to provide insights, best practices and approaches for managing events for the MICE sector. The Boot Camp covers topics including strategic planning, financial management, HR, event design, project management and marketing with examples, practical exercises, tests and team work together with a team challenge to use the knowledge gained to develop a new event for a client. The two day version of the Boot Camp has gained excellent feedback and has been successfully delivered in the UK, Spain and Japan.  

CMP Boot Camp Live is designed to increase understanding and preparation for people with at least two years’ experience to sit the CMP exam. CMP is a certification that is awarded by the Convention Industry Council and is currently held by 10,000 individuals in 55 countries.  

The CMP Boot Camp Live experience is priced at £229 per person (with special rates available at £199 for MPI and other association members). To register your interest contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or go to:
