The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has announced a collaboration with the University of Lincoln to provide resources for students studying Design for Exhibition & Museums, within the university’s School of Architecture & Design.

 

Andrew Harrison, ESSA director, said: “We’re aware of the difficulty recruiting new talent into the industry, and we wanted to inspire and enable students already focused on events and exhibitions, by providing them with the resources and opportunities to help them kick-start their careers in the industry.”

 

ESSA will offer special student memberships, allowing them to attend the association conference, working groups and other events. Students will also have access to ESSA’s online resources and will be offered advice and opportunity by the association and its members.

 

“We’re asking our members to consider offering internships to students, and visit the University of Lincoln to give presentations, workshops and seminars, sharing real-world industry insight with them,” continued Harrison.

 

Elana Van Der Wath, programme leader for the Design for Exhibitions and Museums course, added: “As the only undergraduate degree course in the UK covering the full spectrum of exhibition design, we are very pleased to expand our industry connections by partnering with ESSA.

 

“This partnership offers excellent networking prospects for our students, and a chance to engage with a wide array of industry specialists. We look forward to working with ESSA and its members to enrich our current academic offering and enhance the employability of our graduates.”
