NZAEP launches development bursaries for Eventing the Future 2015
June 4, 2015

The New Zealand Association of Event Professionals (NZAEP) and New Zealand Major Events are inviting entries for Professional Development Bursaries that fund the registration to attend the 2015 Eventing the Future conference - being held in Wellington in July.

Since 2013, NZAEP and New Zealand Major Events have partnered to offer NZAEP members up to 10 contestable bursaries to attend the annual Eventing the Future conference.

As NZAEP Administrator Lisa Dempsey explains “these bursaries have provided a significant professional development opportunity to the deserving recipients, and we are proud to be offering the bursary programme again in 2015.”

The Bursary will enable selected NZAEP members to register for the national events conference, Eventing the Future 2015 (ETF15), free of charge (although it does not include travel, accommodation or other miscellaneous expenses).

Applicants must be working in the events industry in New Zealand and be an NZAEP member, with applications for the Bursary needing to be made by 15th June.

Applicants must respond to the three questions below:

1. Why will attending Eventing the Future be beneficial for your professional development needs and career goals? You may wish to reference specific components in the programme in your answer.

2. What do you think are major challenges or issues for the NZ events industry currently or in the next five years? What do you think could be possible solutions to these challenges or issues?

3. Tell us about yourself, and why you should be awarded this opportunity.

Please also include your contact details and attach a professional profile or two to three page CV summary.
