The events industry is a young and exciting industry that has expanded rapidly in the last decade, giving rise to an ever increasing demand for professional event managers. The industry now includes events of all sizes. Many industries, charitable organisations, and interest groups hold events in order to market themselves, build business relationships, raise money, coordinate events abroad or celebrate achievement. This course will give you a broad understanding of event management, from concept to delivery.
