Karlsruhe, Germany (February 19, 2018) – Event and venue management software provider Ungerboeck is offering training sessions for students and event professionals during the Saudi Meetings Industry Convention in Riyadh, that takes place from 18-20 February 2018.

As part of the partnership between Ungerboeck and SEMA (Saudi Event Management Academy), Ungerboeck will provide three sessions in the fields of venue management, conference and exhibition management.

Located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, SEMA is the first event management academy in Saudi Arabia that covers all aspects of the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE) industry from concept to reality. SEMA offers high-level courses for students, managers and industry professionals. Dr. Zuhair Al Sarraj, CEO at SEMA, is very pleased about this first part of cooperate activities: “We want our students to be taught by the best professors in the industry and are therefore thrilled to have experts from Germany and France here to give lectures about venue, conference and exhibitions management and technology.”

SEMA follows the goal of providing highest standard of international level education in the field of event management to Saudi citizens as well as foreigners living in Saudi Arabia. SEMA also offers courses from international industry associations, i.e. (ICCA, MPI, IAEE).

“I am really looking forward to these sessions. I am happy to be part of this international education opportunity and to share my experience with industry starters and professionals in Saudi Arabia” says Charbel Chamo, Account Executive and Account Manager, Middle East. “We are glad to contribute to SEMA’s goal of promoting international education for event professionals”, adds Holger Friesz, Director of Enterprise Sales, EMEA. Both will be holding sessions at the Saudi Meetings Industry Convention in cooperation with SEMA.

Manish Chandak, CEO and President at Ungerboeck, says: “Education has always been an important topic for Ungerboeck. These training sessions are perfectly contributing to SEMA’s goal to ensure growth and further development of the events industry in Saudi Arabia within the Vision 2030”.
