Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) has agreed an associate partnership agreement with the MPI Foundation (MPIF), the organisation dedicated to investing in people and programmes aligned with Meetings Professionals International.
The agreement will see the association undertake pioneering research of the emirate's meetings industry training needs, zawya.com reports.
Under the terms of the deal, the MPIF will conduct a 'Needs Analysis Survey' on Abu Dhabi's expanding meetings industry to determine the most essential training requirements.
"The analysis results will be packaged by MPI into a stellar training module aimed at delivering destination and industry 'stars' of the future. MPI will then roll out the module on our behalf in Abu Dhabi by the end of the year," explained Dayne Lim, ADTA's product development director.
"We are looking to foster a vibrant and professional local meetings community through the provision of innovative training for the high performance, meeting professional."
Abu Dhabi is, of course, the corporate headquarters of many companies and numerous multinational corporations.
