Event Status


COVID19 Update

Given new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that Americans cancel or postpone events of 50-plus people for the next eight weeks, ASAE is not holding any in-person meetings through May 20, 2020. If you were registered, you will be refunded. For information about future programs and events, visit our event calendar or contact our member services team at [email protected].

The meetings industry is increasingly competitive, and your attendees have more choices than ever for how to spend their conference time and dollars. To boost your competitive edge, you need association-specific expertise in business models, meeting design, marketing, and other critical disciplines.

The Business of Meetings Certificate Program includes six courses covering key topics in meetings management. You will identify critical issues and trends affecting the meetings industry, develop essential business skills, explore exciting innovations, and discover time-saving processes and strategies that you can use immediately. You’ll learn through participation in interactive exercises and collaborative discussions, and you’ll leave feeling more confident and more prepared to plan and execute exceptional meetings for your organization.

When you complete all six courses, you will receive the Business of Meetings certificate.
