You’re a level-headed decision-maker seeking an exciting new career. Build professional skills for an emerging industry and help people run world-class events by studying an event management course.
You know there’s far more to event planning than meets the eye, and you’re prepared to put your skills to use to add magic to events, festivals and conferences for a wide range of different clients. By studying a course in event management, you’ll build the critical business planning, project management, marketing and financial management skills essential to delivering events to clients their supporters will be talking about for years to come.
Event managers work with all aspects of event, conference and festival development and implementation, from brainstorming creative event concepts, to negotiating contracts and allocating budgets and human resources, through to day-of delivery and smooth project management.
As an event manager, you won’t just be draping streamers and laying tables: you’ll play a pivotal role in the negotiation, execution and management of the business of events.
Covering essential skills in negotiation and interaction, critical thinking, project management, budgeting and financial management, human resources management and entrepreneurial thinking, an event management course will equip you with the broad base of skills you need to thrive working in the fast-past events industry, and will introduce you to best-practise events procedures.
You may study an events management course as a certificate or diploma course, or as part of a bachelor’s or master’s degree in business or marketing. After completing an events management course, you may seek employment as an events manager or conference coordinator, working either in a private public relations and event management firm, or in-house for a range of different businesses and government sectors.
