The mission of APIEM is to contribute to the professionalization of the MICE/events industry in Asia Pacific. We do this in many ways through our – Centre of Excellence accreditation scheme, our international scientific journal, training workshops for MICE/events professionals and by organising academic conferences. An exciting initiative for APIEM in 2018 is that we are going to contribute to the professionalization of the MICE/events industry in Indonesia by being a founding partner in the creation of the INDONESIA MICE & EVENTS ACADEMY (IMEA) – Indonesia`s 1st MICE Academy.

IMEA is being established by APIEM, the Bandung Institute of Tourism (Asia`s oldest tourism & hospitality school), number ELEVEN (one of Indonesia`s leading specialist event companies) and Reza Sunardi (Chairman of the Indonesia Hotel General Managers Association). IMEA`s founders combine skills in education & training with practical experience of organising high quality, creative events.

The training that IMEA offers will be for people who want to develop their careers within the MICE/events industry or who want to improve their skills, knowledge and understanding of the MICE/events industry.

All training courses that IMEA offers will be designed by MICE/events industry experts and will be delivered by MICE/events industry experts. Through APIEM the courses will be verified as being of an INTERNATIONAL STANDARD.

The formal launch of APIEM will take place in M

arch 2018 at the Bandung Institute of Tourism, West Java, Indonesia and the first training courses will commence in summer 2018.
