Poznan, Poland, May 6th - 8th 2015

Call for Papers

Welcome to the Institute of Place Management - the international professional  body for people who want to make places better.

The Institute of Place Management was established to promote the development of the profession of place management. Whether you are involved in leading, managing, marketing, branding, making or developing places or you want to change your place, then we can help.

On this site you will learn more about our role, how to become a member and hence have your competences, skills and knowledge recognised, how to access research into all kinds of places as well as information on forthcoming events. As a member  you can access the Journal of Place Management and Development, which is issued three times a year and which contains articles that are furthering knowledge about how we manage places.

If you want to develop your own knowledge about place management, then as well as as learning by experience, you can also participate in the Executive Education programme that has been developed by the Institute of Place Management in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University.

The Institute of Place Management at Manchester Metropolitan University has validated a suite of specialist qualifications designed for those who work to make places better, through development, management, marketing or branding: Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Place Management.

These are all new awards. Whilst over 100 students have successfully studied at Introductory Diploma, International Certificate or Masters level with us, our new postgraduate suite of awards includes more emphasis on the technological drivers of place change, the importance of community development and develops skills in place leadership as well as analysing ‘big data’ to inform place decision making.
