Delegates from UK agencies and corporates including Zibrant, CWT Meetings & Events and Schroders took part in the two-day training programme, which helps attendees become Certified Meeting Professionals (CMPs).

Content at the boot camp was developed by the UK Centre for Events Management at Leeds Beckett University after it was appointed by MPI UK & Ireland in August.

Viki Stapleton, event manager, Schroders, said: "Having been in the events industry for over 15 years, the MPI CMP Boot Camp has been an invaluable aid to recap on my work experiences and learn techniques that will help me gain the CMP accreditation."

The training events are set to take place twice a year, with the next one planned for January 2015.
