PCMA Launches Online Training Subscription – Business Events Series

September 29, 2015

The Professional Convention Management Association recently launched its Business Events Series online training subscription.

The interactive series offers onDemand topical training and development tools for business events professionals.

Unique to the industry, PCMA will release three series modules annually – each tackling current topics relevant to the business events industry.

The “Digital Events” module, already released, will be followed by “Increased Revenues from Events” in October and Concepts in “Meeting Design” in December.

By purchasing the subscription, professionals will obtain 10 series licenses, which can be shared across their teams, to gain topical knowledge and earn CEUs.

In addition, subscribers are prompted to return to the modules for the latest content and trend updates.

“Feedback from our professionals told us they struggle to keep their teams current on critical and trending industry topics,” said Deborah Sexton, PCMA President and CEO.

She added, “The Business Events Series is an easy to use training tool that helps leaders ensure their teams are at the top of their game.”

The Business Event Series is supported by a grant from the PCMA Education Foundation and sponsored by NYC & Company.

“The development and delivery of this new product truly aligns with the Foundation’s mission to fund educational programming that advances our industry,” said Meredith Rollins, PCMA Education Foundation Executive Director. 

She added, “We believe our expansion of online courses will serve as invaluable resources to PCMA’s members and customers – now and into the future.”

Jerry Cito, NYC & Company’s senior vice president of Convention Development, said, “NYC & Company is pleased to partner with PCMA in support of the Business Events Series. The continued education of today’s meeting professionals is critical, and this invaluable tool will lend itself to perpetuating the growth, advancement, and evolution of our industry.”
