The Asia Pacific Conference on Events Management Education (APCEME) is co-organized by the Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management (APIEM) and Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).  It aims to bring together academic researchers and scholars to analyze and create a better understanding between event management education and industry practice.

Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to this APIEM conference. The purpose of the event is to bring together researchers, scholars and event professionals to share up-to-date research and best practices in the subject discipline of events/MICE. Through the presentations, debates and discussions that take place 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.

 

This conference is just one of a number of events that APIEM is organising in 2019 and I hope that you will have the opportunity to join with us at another event that we are organising in the Asia Pacific region. Each event has a distinct theme and they have all been designed to contribute to the professionalisation of the events/MICE industry. All the papers that are presented at our events will be published and as such will develop further the subject body of knowledge in events/MICE.

 

Many thanks for registering to attend this APIEM event and best wishes for your successful and enjoyable participation.
