EVENTS MANAGEMENT

How would you like to be trained by the people who organised Madonna’s wedding and Robbie William’s 30th birthday bash?

This event management course is authored and tutored by those very people and they give you key insights and training in how to make any sort of event a smash hit.

The event market is pretty diverse and can mean organising anything from a simple company board meeting to large outdoor events or indoor exhibitions and conferences. The latter alone is estimated to be an £8bn market in the UK.

This event management Diploma directly covers four main types of event:

·        Conferences, events and large meetings for commercial corporations, institutions and public sector organisations

·        Private functions like weddings, birthday parties, christenings

·        Large-scale outdoor events like music festivals and parades

·        Trade exhibitions – events where producers and suppliers of goods and services display and demonstrate their product.

The name given to the discipline where the whole package including travel, incentives and event management is provided is called Destination Management. This Event Management Diploma also provides access to further training for those interested in achieving a tourism qualification.

1. Traditional paper-based; using a manual
2. Online study; provides quick access to online course material and enables you to submit question papers to your tutor, and receive feedback and results, through your personal online student account. The online courses system also gives access to course material instantly.
