Reed Travel Exhibition’s IBTM Portfolio Partners With RecertTrack

IBTM, Reed Travel Exhibitions global meetings portfolio of events, has created a partnership with the Association & Meetings Professionals’ Advancement Portal powered by RecertTrack that will provide the industry with the first “Official Education Tracking Service” for all event attendees. RecertTrack is the first company to offer an e-certification renewal support solution to certified professionals in the sector.

This new initiative will also boost RTE’s commitment to the value and importance of industry certification and with more than 40 knowledge sessions within its global portfolio, all earning CEU credits for attendees, RecertTrack will now provide an online tracking service for industry certifications. At the same time, members of organizations like MPI, PCMA, ICCA, site, GMIC among others will be able to also sign up if they are attending IBTM events.

“As the largest provider of events for the meetings sector, it made sense that we partner with this new industry initiative. Not only is RecertTrack sustainable as an online portal that complements our ISO certification, but it’s a clever idea and much needed in a sector where there is so much education and so many industry certifications. We will be launching this value added service for EIBTM in Barcelona this year, but all of the IBTM portfolio of attendees will be able to receive a special subscription rate once they have uploaded their details and have registered to attend one of our shows,” said Mandy Torrens, Reed Travel Exhibitions, Marketing Manager, IBTM Portfolio of Events.
