This would actually be the “Our Progress” Block

Meeting and business events professionals are key to front-line defense efforts to combat human trafficking. Victims are often sold in hotel rooms and transported via airlines, commercial buses, and the on-demand economy. 

To combat this, ECPAT-USA is launching #20BY20, a new campaign to train 20,000 business events (BE) professionals by 2020. Training is key for BE professionals to understand their unique position in joining the fight. 

Join The CAmpaign

Addressing the issue of human trafficking as well as the intersections between human trafficking and the event and travel industry, ECPAT-USA’s 25-minute online course, Preventing & Responding To Human Trafficking And The Commercial Sexual Exploitation Of Children teaches BE leaders how to become BE Protectors. This course provides (CE) credit for the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) credential.

Become an ECPAT-USA Business Events Champion

BE Champions raise awareness and financially sponsor member, team, and employee access to ECPAT-USA’s training.
