About Event Training Australia – An Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management International Centre of Excellence
Event Training Australia (ETA) is the first Australian training organisation to be acknowledged as an Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management International Centre of Excellence in Event Management Education and Training.
ETA has its origins in the award winning Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM), University of Technology, Sydney, and 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.
ETA’s understanding of what constitutes ‘best practice’ event management is reflected in its founder’s (Dr Rob Harris) co-authoring of the widely used texts – Festival and Special Event Management, and Event Management, and handbook – The Regional Event Management Handbook, and by his appointment as a Professional Fellow of the Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management.
Since its establishment, ETA has developed and delivered its programs in multiple Australian (Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Brisbane and Perth) and overseas locations (Singapore, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur), often in partnership with industry associations, government bodies, corporations or universities.
