What is Event Management?
Event Management is a very broad term that refers to the application of principles used in project management to create and develop events, conferences and festivals. Whether it is organising a school fete or the Soccer World Cup Tournament, all events need to be properly planned and coordinated to ensure success. The diverse nature of Event Management Studies and the enormous growth it has made over the past few years makes this such an interesting field with countless opportunities.
The organisation and management of festivals and events has become a full-blown industry and every year a huge sum of money is invested in it. The purpose of these events would depend on the context in which it is hosted, in other words either to market a business, build business relationships, raise company morale, raise money or to celebrate a specific event. It goes without saying that employers are therefore seeking capable Event Managers to host events successfully, as they don't want to lose the capital they're investing.
