Showcase & Educational Events (Networking & Education):
In any profession, information and advancement go hand-in-hand. Australasian Affiliate Chapters provide members with education and networking opportunities at monthly showcase events. Each event provides members and their staff with the opportunity to meet like-minded industry professionals…people who have the potential to become suppliers, clients and/or partners to your business. These events are also designed to keep you abreast of the latest trends as well as related topics that are of critical importance to the special events industry.
ISES has developed the internationally recognised Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP) designation. Becoming a CSEP means being honoured with the hallmark of professional achievement in the special events industry, worldwide. ISES membership gives you access to achieve this much sought after international accreditation.(Click here)
If you are the best at what you do, then ISES wants to let the world know about it. ISES Esprit Awards were created to honour the excellence and spirit of cooperation within the special events industry. The Esprit Awards fuel a spirit of competition within several designated categories and provide global visibility and recognition for ISES members through general participation.(Click here)
Promoting Your Business:
Member articles are featured online in both chapter websites as well as emailed to our extensive database in the form of a monthly newsletter. Featured members are changed at regular intervals to allow event organisers and suppliers alike to reap the benefits of this exposure. ISES also exhibits at many top industry tradeshows as well as being aligned with many leading industry publications. This allows us to promote our membership extensively to key decision makers…your clients.
Keeping You Informed:
Keep up-to-date with industry news and views with the ‘Special Events’ magazine. This is the most informative and circulated industry-dedicated publication worldwide which is included as part of your membership. You can also access the bulletin board service on the international web-site at www.ises.com. Having these types of resources at your finger tips allows you to stay in touch with your special events colleagues, seek broad input from industry professionals, keep abreast of cutting edge resources and technology... and much more.
