Introduction

Thinking of a career in Event Management?

It’s about working with caterers and fashion agents and marquee providers. It’s about booking bands, clowns and balloons. It's about sourcing flowers made from vegetables, and cakes made from ice. Event management is also about planning and coordination. Understanding health and safety legislation. Knowing when you need licenses or special permissions. Mostly, Event Management is about making creative ideas come to life and doing so professionally.
