New qualification for venue managers in Asia Pacific

The Venue Management Association (Asia and Pacific) (VMA) has launched a new Accredited Venue Manager Program.

The program will form part of a two tier achievement programme which includes:

1. The new Accredited Venue Manager (AVM) designed to recognise extensive venue management experience, contribution and qualifications for middle to senior managers;

2. The internationally recognised Certified Facilities Executive (CFE) under the auspices of the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) at the higher level.

Accredited managers will be able to place the designation AVM or CFE after their name as appropriate.

The trade organisation stated that the objective of the programme is to enhance career prospects and encourage VMA members to take part in personal development as venue management professionals.

Professionals wanting to gain recognition for their achievements within the venue management industry and become an AVM need to complete an Entry Criteria Scoresheet to determine their eligibility.
