Future Shapers program is NOW OPEN for applications

Date: 29/08/2022


Following the resounding success of AIPC’s inaugural Future Shapers program, venues are invited to again encourage their top talent to apply for a place in the 2023 program.


  • Talent retention. Convention centre leaders around the world continue to manage talent retention and moving skill sets as we navigate a rapidly changing business environment.
  • Success.  Alumni from the Future Shapers program have applied their knowledge and are moving up the ranks within their venues while the solutions to their challenges have been matched with investment to deliver their future shaping ideas.
  • Legacy. Provide your top talent with the opportunity to play a role in shaping our industry while building your profile along the way.

Applications for the elevated management program close 23 September 2022 with the course commencing 18 October 2022.

The Future Shapers program supports the development of the high performers within the AIPC community to think and act like leaders. Participants will be senior managers on a path to the highest leadership roles within their organisations. Through education, a community of peers & mentors, and a platform to perform, the program will support these future leaders to become future shapers of our industry.

To be perfectly clear: this is not a management course. This is an interactive roadmap towards excellence in convention centre management, requiring commitment and engagement of the participants. In exchange, we offer the candidates the opportunity to help shape the future of the AIPC Community. The full value proposal can be found here.

I’m calling on each of you to nominate up to two people within your organisation to apply for the program. Candidates are required to prepare a short written pitch and a 5-minute video for review. The application process and selection criteria can be found here.

Let’s shape the future of venues together.
