Both long term professionals and those new to the event industry attended our Sydney event management course.
Attendees at our Executive Certificate in Event Management (Business and Public Events) held in Sydney in October 2018 were drawn from the public and private sector including local government, special event companies, banks, insurance companies, charities, venues and industry associations.
The program was conducted at the University of Technology, Sydney, and involved presentations on various aspects of event management.
The course included event management case studies by Meredith Burton from Bee-Events plus an in-depth analysis of issues linked to event catering by Ross Mitchell, Director, Forte Catering.
“A quick email to say thank you for letting us participate in elements of the Event Training. It was really helpful to the team who are relatively new to events and for someone like myself who has been in the game a while, I was still able to pick up additional learnings and insights” – Ms Dina Bonke, Manager of Ceremonies and Events, University of Technology, Sydney
About our Sydney Event Training Courses
The four-day Executive Certificate in Event Management Course (Business and Public Events) is held at locations throughout Australia, including Sydney, is based on an extensive survey of event industry professionals. The program is specifically designed to both enhance the skill and knowledge base of those already employed to plan and deliver events and to serve as a sound platform for those people seeking to launch careers in the exciting and varied field of event management.
The number and type of events conducted in Australia has grown exponentially over the past decade. This growth has resulted from governments seeking to leverage events for economic purposes, along with an expanded recognition of the role events play in areas such as marketing communications, information sharing, organisational learning and community development. As the number of events have grown, so too has the need for trained professionals capable of planning and delivering events of various types including conferences, product launches, exhibitions, sporting events, parades and networking and social events. This program contributes to meeting this need by providing a grounding in the key skills and knowledge required to successfully project manage the full spectrum of events.
