The U.S. meetings, conventions and exhibitions industry generates more than $120 billion a year, supporting nearly two million jobs. Students can explore this exciting growth industry with the convention sales and meeting planning certificate program. The demand for professionals is strong, and this program provides an excellent foundation for enhancing career opportunities nationally, regionally and locally.
Phoenix is a major convention and meeting destination.There is a need for qualified professionals to service conventions and meetings, due in large part to the $600 million investment in the Phoenix Convention Center expansion, development of new hotels and other visitor-related products and the steady influx of corporate headquarters relocating to the greater Phoenix area.
The certificate, which has been endorsed by the Greater Phoenix Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Arizona Sunbelt Chapter of Meeting Professionals International, enhances a graduate's career opportunities as a tourism professional.
