Conferences & Events Management


This program is intended for all individuals who are working of planning to work in Event Management.


  • Create a strong concept and strategy for an event
  • Choose the most appropriate format, scale, venue and identity for an event
  • Design an engaging program of content for your event
  • Plan and prepare all aspects of event logistics


Although it does take plenty of creativity to design an event that is memorable and meaningful, it also takes careful attention to detail, adaptability, effective delegating, and a lot of work. This two-day course will walk you through the process of event management, from the beginning stages of planning, to the final touches (like decorations, food, and music). While this course is specifically for corporate event planning, the elements here can also be applied to more personal event planning. Essentially, we’re creating an effective and well planned design that is ready for implementation and can be used over and over again.
