    Course description and aims

    This qualification reflects the role of individuals operating at a senior level who use a wide range of specialised managerial skills and substantial knowledge of event management processes to conceive, plan and stage events. They operate with significant autonomy and are responsible for making strategic business and event management decisions.

    Events are diverse in nature and this qualification provides a pathway to work for event or exhibition organisations operating in a range of industries, including the tourism and travel, hospitality, sport, cultural, and community sectors.

    The diversity of employers includes event or exhibition management companies, event venues, or organisations that organise their own events. Work could be undertaken in an office environment where the planning of events takes place, on-site at venues where events are staged, or a combination of both.

    Possible job titles include:
    conference manager
    event director
    event producer
    event or exhibition manager
    functions manager
    in-house meetings manager
    meetings manager
    project manager
    venue manager.

    No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
