Welcome to APIEM Events
APIEM Events has been created to contribute to the professionalisation of the events/MICE industry in Asia Pacific by bringing together events/MICE professionals, scholars and students to share knowledge and understanding about the events/MICE industry. By joining one of our events your knowledge and understanding of the events/MICE industry will be considerably enhanced and will enable you to take some of the ideas generated into your work place. The papers that are presented at our events will be published (subject to the approval of the journal`s editorial board) and as such will develop further the subject body of knowledge in events/MICE.
Throughout 2020 APIEM Events is organising a series of conferences, forum and symposia in different locations throughout Asia Pacific. Our signature conference is titled the `2nd Asia Pacific State of the Art Events Management Research Conference` and this conference welcomes papers on a great variety of events/MICE topics. The location of our signature conference is the wonderful city of Manila, Philippines.
I hope that you will have the opportunity to join with us at one of our 2020 events – further information about each one can be found on this website.

Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management
The Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management (APIEM) has been created to contribute to the professionalisation of the events/MICE industry in Asia Pacific. We do this in a variety of different ways:
Supporting the development of an international standard events/MICE curriculum at universities, polytechnics and colleges in Asia Pacific
Accrediting as Centres of Excellence those universities, polytechnics and colleges that are able to demonstrate that their events/MICE programs are of an international standard
Organising short courses on events/MICE topics for professionals working in the industry
Designing international human capacity building programs for faculty who teach events/MICE subjects
Certifying through the APIEM Certified Event Management Qualifications industry professionals and events/MICE faculty who are able to provide evidence that their work practices are aligned to the United Kingdom National Occupation Standards for the Events Industry;
Contributing to the body of knowledge in events/MICE through the publication of the Asia Pacific International Events Management Journal and the APIEM Certified Event Management textbook; and
Sharing best practices in the events/MICE industry through one of our themed events - conferences, forums and symposiums.
APIEM is delighted to invite you to join one of our themed events in 2020.
Over the last 10 years events/MICE management has emerged as a new academic subject discipline that is included in the curricula of universities, polytechnics and colleges throughout Asia Pacific. To support the teaching of events/MICE management faculty are required and encouraged to undertake research to develop further the body of knowledge in this emerging subject discipline.
The conferences will provide an opportunity for scholars and industry professionals to meet, to share their contemporary research findings and to have their papers published.
The aims of this international, scientific, research conferences are to provide a forum for scholars and industry professionals to:
share their contemporary research findings with peers and to examine the importance of these research findings for the management and development of the events/MICE industry in Asia Pacific
create an opportunity for critical discussion of the key contemporary issues and themes that emerge from the research papers
enable delegates to network and establish academic, industry and research collaborations of mutual interest and benefit
publish contemporary knowledge in the events/MICE management subject discipline so that it can be used to inform the development and content of events/MICE management undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs of the future
Who Should Attend
The following delegates will find the conferences of benefit:
Academic researchers and faculty/lecturers who research and teach in the fields of events management, MICE, hospitality, leisure and tourism with an interest in the Asia Pacific events/MICE industry
Postgraduate and PhD scholars who are studying programs in events management/MICE
Events/MICE management professionals who work for public and private sector organisations that are involved with the management and development of the events/MICE industry
