brisbane event management courses


This four-day Executive Certificate in Event Management Course (Business and Public Events) held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, 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.
