CMP: Three little letters with a big payoff


When we think about the CMP, we always think about three more letters: ROI.

A Certified Meeting Professional designation puts you in an elite group of business events professionals with a globally recognized badge of excellence.

If you’re a planner, it will help you understand suppliers better. If you’re a supplier, it will help you understand planners and other suppliers better.”

Jenny Stanfield, CMP, sales manager, group and events for Cineplex

Here are four more reasons the CMP investment is worth it:

Collect More Pay

Business events professionals with a CMP designation averaged nearly $11,000 more earnings than colleagues without the certification, according to Convene magazine’s 2018 Salary Survey. The average pay of respondents was nearly $90,000 for CMPs, compared with an overall average salary of $79,000.

Rise above the rest

A CMP shows the whole industry that you know events management and that you adhere to the highest standards of ethics. If you’re looking for a job, a CMP helps your resume rise to the top.

Join an elite club

You’ll be part of a community of more than 11,000 business events professionals with a CMP designation in 55 countries.

Increase your value

The CMP designation demonstrates your commitment to advancing your professional credentials, making you even more valuable to your organization.
