The partnership, originally announced earlier this year, will see the two organizations work together on a number of cross promotional initiatives over the next 12 months, with ISES providing a dedicated Education Program, containing its ISES Approved content, at the 2016 Catersource and Event Solutions Conference & Tradeshow, which takes place at the Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas on March 13 – 16, 2016.
Jodi Collen CSEP, ISES International President, comments; “We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with the Catersource and Event Solutions team since forming our partnership earlier this year. We share the same values and objectives in helping to provide the very best education for the events industry and are delighted that our collaboration will extend into 2016, benefiting both our two organizations and our industry.”
Ron Bigley, Brand Director for Catersource and Event Solutions, adds; "We’re excited to be working with ISES once again this year. Our partnership with this talented group of event professionals helps both of our organizations to ignite, inspire and connect the catering and events communities which supports the growth and expansion of this evolving industry.”
The partnership was the first to be announced as part of the growing ISES Global Partner Program, which was launched in 2014, and which enables organizations to develop commercial partnerships with the international event association and to gain access to its membership and their combined $22 billion of global event spend.
