In a rapidly shifting business environment, AAXO believes that our members need to be ahead of the game to deliver exceptional service, innovative platforms and organisational excellence. As part of our mission to invest in our members we are proud to deliver two new programmes that will enhance our contribution to training and development for the industry, the IAEE Certified in Exhibition Management (CEM) programme and the AAXO Education Masterclasses. These courses are valuable to both supplier and organiser employees who are keen on uplifting their professional development.

There are over 3 000 active CEM’s around the world that have earned this premier mark of professional accomplishment in exhibitions and events. The CEM programme is made up of a comprehensive curriculum, which is composed of 8 modules that are essential for exhibition and events management.
