The CEM training helps executives work more effectively with all aspects of our industry by broadening their overall knowledge base in specific areas. CEMs also gain a heightened knowledge that helps them respond to customers, vendors and daily challenges.” World Market Center is an integrated home and hospitality contract furnishings showroom and convention complex in Las Vegas.
