Course Details

Event management involves studying the intricacies of the brand, identifying the target audience, devising the event concept, planning the logistics and coordinating the technical aspects before actually executing the proposed event. Event Management is a serious career option, and very rewarding. The launch of iconic projects such as the Atlantis, the impact of exhibitions such as GITEX, The Air Show, and the huge investment in sporting events such as the Cricket World Cup, Tennis Championships and Formula 1 - demonstrates that the world is an event managers paradise. Governments are realizing the power of events and tourism, with a plethora of shows, concerts, festivals and carnivals aimed at attracting tourists and locals alike.
