This course presents principles and practices for individuals who plan and organize events, meetings, conferences, or conventions. By gaining a clear understanding of the event planning process, developing management skills and getting familiar with the best practices in the event industry, participants will be better prepared to run their own event or conference. This course will also cover event planning tools to manage time, space, money, human resources, information, materials and problems that may arise through the event planning process.
The workshop is designed to be interactive and participatory, including various pedagogical tools to enable the participants to operate effectively and efficiently in a multifunctional environment. The course is based on four pedagogical pillars: concept learning (lectures and presentations), role playing (group exercises), experience sharing (roundtable discussions) and exposure to real world problems and policy choices confronting delegates.
Managers, supervisors and officers involved in the planning or management of events, exhibitions and conferences as well as managers and officers of public relations.
