Singapore, Singapore, October 15, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- An innovative first of its kind events training program sees growth in interest over the next few years with more buzz being created in the Singapore's Mice industry and across all sectors, due to the ongoing development of the Integrated Resorts in Singapore.
From Mr Lim Neo Chian's, CEO of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), point of view (the Straits Times report, September 3 2008), the future opening of the two integrated resorts (IRs) in Marina Bay and Sentosa, as well as the Gardens by the Bay in Marina South, will be a fillip for the industry. He added that "Singapore also ranked top city for business meeting, conventions".
With the soaring growth of the mice and events organising in corporations, companies, non-profit organisations, voluntary welfare organisations, government sectors, events management skills learning and upgrading become essential to consistently and constantly scale professional heights in Singapore.
The unique Events Management Action Program (EMAP) project is the first of its kind training program founded and created by the Singapore company, Comslink International, and endorsed by the Association of Professional Trainers, Singapore (APTS). It would be held from 7 November 08 to 28 February 09. The second EMAP, to be held in Singapore, is now open for registrations.
The organisers of the EMAP hope that the project will help organisations and individuals cast a wider net when seeking new opportunities in the MICE sector.
APTS's objective is to help its members who are professional trainers, or who are aspiring to be professional trainers, achieve higher standards through its programmes that are dedicated to exposing them to a wide array of training practices from all disciplines.
EMAP offers specialised skills development oriented instruction and coaching combined with real-life "hands-on" intensive practice in events management where participants get the chance to apply the lessons learnt in the training setting.
