Three Of The Best
Three of our students progressed to the finals of the highly prestigious MPI UK and Ireland Vanessa Cotton Scholarship competition.
MPI is one of the events sector’s largest professional association, boasting a membership of more than 60 000 in 75 countries. The awards are named in honour of Vanessa Cotton who enjoyed a distinguished career in the industry.
Entrants to the competition were asked to demonstrate their previous events-related work experience, both paid and voluntary, and to show advanced knowledge of the sector. The competition was created to recognise the industry’s brightest and most ambitious event management students as they embark upon careers in the meetings and events sector.
