Conference and Event Management - Course

Price: R540

Not rated
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 like anniversaries, special birthday gatherings, weddings, and more. Essentially, we’re creating an effective and well planned design that is ready for implementation and can be used over and over again.

Plan a complete corporate event, including an agenda, budget, goals, venue, audience, food, and whatever else your client needs
Keep your event on budget
Design an advertising and marketing plan that includes a comprehensive use of media, take-aways, and/or swag bags
Determine whether partners, sponsors, and volunteers can help to make your event unforgettable
Create an atmosphere of service that delegates will remember

Create a diversity plan
Evaluate the process once it's all wrapped up
