Melbourne Hosts Event Management Course

Australian special event management gurus, Dr Rob Harris and John Allen AM, will deliver the Executive Certificate in Event Management, a short course due to run at Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne from 14-17 November.

Recently awarded 2011 Best Education Program at the Australian Event Awards, the course is based on the textbook Festival and Special Event Management written by the presenters.

Taught by the Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM), based at the University of Technology in Sydney (UTS), the Executive Certificate is regarded as the most prestigious short-course in event management amongst prospective employers and industry leaders in government, corporate and not-for-profit organisations.

Aimed at graduates, young professionals trying to break into the Victorian events industry, and experienced event managers wanting to update their skill sets, the course will allow students to learn about how events of all scales are run and managed, from the world’s major music festivals to free community fairs.

Students will explore the delivery of a range of events, from corporate functions to large sporting events.

ACEM has chosen Melbourne as the location for this course because the city continues to host hundreds of international and national sporting and business events, including the award-winning Australian Open and Australian Grand Prix.

“Victoria is a world leader in the creating and delivering some of the world’s most significant major events. This rapidly growing industry increasingly demands professional staff with recognised skills and qualifications, whom also have a knowledge of creative, operational, production, legal and safety issues,” said Robert Harris, ACEM Director.

“The Executive Certificate offers students and event professionals a firm basis in theory and case studies, matched with practical insights from successful industry professionals. All our students graduate with globally recognised credentials and have an invaluable networking experience with the leaders of the industry, their fellow students and future colleagues.”

“While the Executive Certificate does provide an introduction to the industry for graduates or young professionals, advanced event managers will also benefit from training with ACEM to keep abreast of industry trends and innovations.”

Places are limited, and enrolments are filling fast – students have just two weeks to secure their place on the course.
