Couldn't Come to Barcelona? This is for YOU!

ADMEI heard our members that weren't able to come to Barcelona, but hated to miss the excellent educational programs we had planned.  We were able to video the four general sessions and we now have them available for a reasonable fee for your viewing.

Need DMCP or CMP certification or recertification credits?  

You can earn them by viewing one or more of these videos and completing an exercise that demonstrates you watched the entire video - and then you will receive a certificate suitable for your continuing education needs.

The four sessions available are:

Targeting Your Global Audience in the Digital Age

Sebastien Tondeur is CEO of MCI, a global events management company.  He set the tone for our global conference with his truly unique global perspective from doing business transnationally.  He reviews both the macro and micro impact of the global economy on the meetings industry. From his perspective as a member of generation X that lived the digital revolution, he offers a complete view of what digital transformation is really about beyond the obvious Uber and AirBnB of this world. He also shares a personal but concrete perspective on the future of the meetings industry.

Sebastien Tondeur's insights were the most useful thing I learned at this conference.  

Security in Event Management

This panel session features Eda Ozden, MEP a Destination Business Solutions Company, Turkey; Gordon Keay, Senior Director, Global Safety & Security, Europe, Marriott Hotels International; and Justin Kelley, Managing Director of Operations, MSA Security.  This session looks at event security from three different perspectives: a DMC in an area that has had to deal with safety and security issues for their clients; a major international hotel chain that deals with a wide range of concerns for their guests' safety; and a company that provides security for major events, including the Pope's visit to the US.

Very relevant in today's market. Well done and interesting content and panelists.

Industry Point of View

This panel features David Bartlett,  Vice President  Global Sales - Europe, Marriott Hotels International; Dave Caldwell, Vice President, Maritz International; Annamaria Ruffini, CEO of Events In & Out and President-Elect for SITE; and Christophe Verstraete, Executive Director, euromic.  This free-wheeling conversation covered current and future trends in the incentive industry from four different points of view.

Great session... Lots of takeaways! I loved that we included Marriott who was able to enlighten us as to what the SPG acquisition looks like moving forward.

The DMC Conundrum: Will it Ever Be Solved?

Padraic Gilligan and Patrick Delaney, Managing Partners, SoolNua, provide a thought-provoking session that identifies five potential models for how a DMC can look in the next five years - and what your company needs to do to chart its course for the future.  

Best session of the conference! The DMC Conundrum with Padraic and Patrick was very thorough information on expectations internally and externally of a DMC. 


The cost to view one video is $65; all four are available for $200.  If you are using these videos for in-house staff training, as many people as you want can view it at a time.  The initial cost covers the continuing education certificate for one view only.

After you have purchased the videos, if you have additional staff that want the continuing education certificate to use for the DMCP or CMP certification/recertification requirements, contact ADMEI for a 50% discount code that can be used for each video.  You must register separately for each video to earn a continuing education certificate.


That's what we're here for!  Either email us or call us at 1.937.586.3727 and we'll be glad to answer them for you.
