The UK Venue Managers Association (Director, Neil Levett) and Buckinghamshire New University (Head of Department, Music and Event Management, Teresa Moore) have recently launched a new academic qualification – the first time there has been a qualification dedicated to the venue management industry. The registration process was finalised at Wembley Stadium on 22nd February.
Association members and individual managers throughout the country have been calling for a dedicated qualification and academic modules to promote continuous professional development and raise the profile and status of the industry for young people. Now the UKVMA has linked with Bucks New University to create a solution.
The UKVMA provides a platform for members to share information, management styles, real time experiences and best practice whilst gaining access to other members, networking opportunities and suppliers.
