Leeds Met academics from the UK Centre for Events Management/International Centre for Research in Events, Tourism and Hospitality will be presenting their research on Strategic Meetings Management next week at the European Meetings and Events Conference (EMEC) in Istanbul.


In a new game format devised by the UK Centre for Events Management team here at Leeds Met, Dr Eliza Hixson will be presenting alongside industry representatives. Jackie Mulligan will be presenting a closing keynote flashpoint entitled "Transformational Lessons from the Future".

The conference, which attracts meeting professionals from across Europe as well as all parts of the world, takes place annually as a key part of the Meeting Professionals International (MPI) calendar.

Leeds Met Events Management student Olivia Pole-Evans, the winner of the Vanessa Cotton Memorial Scholarship, will be attending the conference, whilst undergraduate James Guerin and graduate Emma Heslington will be joining the international team managing the conference itself.

Jackie commented: "It is great to be presenting content once again to businesses worldwide, showcasing our research but also and most importantly; the event is providing excellent opportunities for our events management students".
