New Zealand Association of Event Professionals Bursary Programme
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and the New Zealand Association of Events Professionals are once again offering up to ten Professional Development Bursaries to attend the annual Eventing the Future 2014 (ETF14), to be held in Christchurch from 6-7 August.
The bursaries will provide registration for successful entrants, and are being offered as part of the ongoing partnership between the two organisations. They are aimed at event career-focused individuals who want to make a difference within the industry, and who can demonstrate how the conference will assist their professional development.
“The Bursaries provide an opportunity for event organisers to up-skill and supports the professional development of recipients in a number of different ways. The conference has such a mix of attendees that I hope this encourages even more new and up and coming event organisers to attend” says Kylie Archer, Manager Major Events.
