About Us

Event Training Australia (ETA) has its origins in the recently closed Australian Event Award winning Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM), University of Technology, Sydney. ETA was established to continue, and build upon, ACEM’s event training and education legacy. As such, ETA draws on over 20 years of experience in the development of innovative practice-based education and training programs in the event management field. These programs span one-day workshops to Masters level university courses. ETA’s understanding of ‘best practice’ event management is further reflected in its founder’s (Dr Rob Harris) co-authoring of the widely used texts and handbooks – Festival and Special Event Management, Event Management and the Regional Event Management Handbook.

Who are our courses designed for?

Event Training Australia’s courses are specifically intended for individuals that:

  • need to build event management skills and knowledge quickly because of their expanded work role;
  • seek to develop careers in the event management field, but currently lack the skills/knowledge to do so; or
  • Are currently employed in an event coordinator or event manager role and wish to ensure they are employing industry best practice.
