The Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management is Asia Pacific`s Number 1 Professional Institute for Events Education.
Established in 2016 APIEM`s mission is to contribute to the professionalisation of the events and MICE industry in the Asia Pacific region. We do this in a number of ways by:
Accrediting as APIEM Centres of Excellence those universities, polytechnics, colleges and training providers in Asia Pacific that have been audited to demonstrate that they provide an undegraduate events/MICE curriculum of an international standard
Offering the APIEM Certified Event Management courses through 100% on-line study
Supporting the development of an international standard curriculum in events/MICE education through consultancy services to universities, polytechnics and colleges
Contributing to the events/MICE academic body of knowledge by publishing the APIEM books `International Best Practice in Event Management` and `International Best Practice in Creative Event Design` (available from Google Books)
Organising international continuing professional development programs to the United Kingdom for faculty lecturers who teach events/MICE subjects, and event industry professionals
Bringing together events/MICE academics and practitioners at international conferences organised by APIEM Conferences
Accrediting as APIEM Postgraduate International Centres of Excellence those universities and polytechnics in Asia Pacific that have been audited to demonstrate that they provide a postgraduate events, hospitality or tourism curriculum of an international standard
I have fond memories of the annual APIEM Seniors Meeting that I attended at the Joji Ilagan International Schools, Davao, Philippines. The meeting gathered hospitality and tourism schools from across Asia Pacific and allowed me to meet fellow APIEM Professional Members to share best practices in events management education and events research. I now see APIEM spreading its wings throughout Asia Pacific countries by offering professional programs that will benefit the professional members and the events industry. I am proud to endorse APIEM as the number 1 professional institute for events education and professionalization in Asia Pacific. I wish APIEM more successful ventures in the future.

An outstanding educational institution cannot be built overnight. During the last five years APIEM has become the leading Institute for Events Education in the Asia Pacific region. This has only been secured through the hard work and dedication of many people.

Since its launch in 2016 APIEM has grown, under the strategic leadership of Professor David Hind, to become the leading professional institute in Asia Pacific for events education. APIEM is now a big events management family which is key for opening doors for partnership and collaboration opportunities for events professors, researchers and students not just in Asia Pacific but also in Europe through the APIEM global network.
