Course Details

A brief overview of the history of events will allow you to compare today’s modern environment with how the industry has evolved over the years. A perspective will also be taken on the future, enabling you to understand how events will evolve within the marketing and communications needs of developing business and social environments.

You will be introduced to objective setting and gain an appreciation of strategic planning. You’ll also learn how to compile a marketing strategy using not only traditional teaching methods but also new techniques through examining relevant business case studies. We believe that all our students should understand:

  • The significance of marketing events
  • How events can contribute to an organisation’s return on investment (ROI)

We’ll teach you about budgeting, public relations, communications and post-event analysis techniques and relate them directly back to how they fit with events. The course will also cover the creation of planning materials for event logistics, the importance of executing agreed action plans and the various responsibilities that lie with you, the event manager.

During your time with us you’ll get lots of experience in using project plans, timelines, and senior management reporting systems.

Sessions will concentrate on the practical aspects of events such as:

  • Venue sourcing and management
  • Supplier appointment and liaison
  • Client account management
  • Contracts and terms & conditions
  • Risk management and Health and Safety

If I have to do, I would do it again.
