What is YEMP?

YEMP is a two-week training course including lectures and training on the job. After a selection process 7 young people from different countries will be invited to participate in the programme.
The young YEMPers, fully included in the organising team, will be testing themselves with roles of responsibility in the various offices of the Competition, under the guidance of two coaches.

YEMP is open for young managers aged 18 to 30, who are motivated to learn and to develop their skills in international event management and who can communicate in English.

Music background is desirable, but not necessary.

Participation is only possible in the full programme!
Participation conditions

Selected young managers do not need to pay a participation fee but will have to cover their travel expenses.
Free food and accommodation will be provided by the Competition.


Fill in the online form until 30 November 2019.


Selected participants will be informed on 15 December 2019.

Online preparation

Selected participants will be asked to deal with a number of online tasks in advance of the actual training course, between 15 December and 15 January. This will include watching videos of Webinars offered in the frame of the STAMP project (see www.stamp-music.org).
