BCME’s Founder Once Again On The International Academy Of Wedding & Event Planning’s Advisory Board
A couple of years back, we announced the good news that BCME’s founder, Rhiannon Downie-Hurst had been chosen to be a member of the International Academy of Wedding & Event Planning’s 2016 and 2017 Advisory Board. For the upcoming seasons of 2018 and 2019, we are delighted to reveal that Rio is once again on this prestigious board of some of the world’s leading wedding professionals.
The International Academy of Wedding and Event Planning was first launched in 2004, and there are now six ‘campuses’ worldwide, including in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the USA, South East Asia and here in the UAE. Existing essentially as an online portal for those who wish to join internationally recognised accreditation programmes and begin working in the wedding industry, or for existing professionals to develop and enhance their skills, team BCME has attended a number of events in collaboration with the UAE campus, such as the networking event with Chelsea LaVere back in August.
Kylie Carlson, the Academy’s CEO and founder, said of the new board:
2018 has already been an exciting year for the International Academy of Wedding and Event Planning. With that, we’re thrilled to continue the momentum by assembling top industry thought leaders from around the world. It has been a true honour to pursue our role as a global leader in wedding and event planning, styling and design education, and we are quite fortunate to welcome this elite group of professionals to the team. Now more than ever, it’s essential we maintain an international vision as we look ahead to what’s to come.
Rio and forty-nine other wedding professionals around the world will make up the board, contributing their input into course materials, providing guidance for Academy students and sharing their insight with Wedding Business Magazine, as well as the annual International Wedding Trend Report.
