VMA announces dates for 2021 Venue Management School

VMA announces dates for 2021 Venue Management School
March 11, 2021

The Venue Management Association (VMA) has announced the dates for the 2021 Venue Management School and Leadership Institute to be held at Salt Resort, Kingscliff between the 7th and 12th November.

With the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 School, the VMA is looking forward to welcoming a new intake of Year 1 students who will join returning Year 2 students as they complete their studies and graduate.

The world-renowned VMS combines the ultimate venue industry networking experience with a two-year program featuring workshops, discussions and presentations to explore essential topics to the venue industry.

Executive-level venue managers with years of experience and endless industry connections, instruct each session with ready-to-implement strategies for venues of all sizes and sectors.

Completed by close to 900 students, VMS has been cultivating the next generation of venue professionals for over 25 years and is ideal for middle to senior managers.

The VMA Leadership Institute (LI) is held concurrently with the VMS and is the benchmark educational program for senior managers to executives looking to enhance their leadership ability and prepare to take on a larger role within their organisation.

Accepting a limited number of students per year, the LI consists of in-depth sessions focusing on leadership skills specific to the venue industry.

Exploring leadership styles, strategic planning, management theory, the art of negotiation, leading change and more, LI is your ticket to being a recognised authority in the venue management business.

Visit the website for all the details and to register your interest, check out the 2021 VMI & LI Prospectus or contact the VMA Education Manager to discuss your suitability.
