What is events management?

Events management involves planning, executing and evaluating different types of events, including concerts, conferences, weddings, product launches, and sports tournaments. Events management is a fast-growing and fast-paced industry that involves activities such as:

  • Identifying and securing venues for events.
  • Planning event schedules.
  • Managing event budgets.
  • Arranging the catering, décor and entertainment for events.
  • Marketing events (or sending out event invitations).
  • Providing assistance on the day of an event.
  • Evaluating the success of an event once it has taken place.

Events management is both exciting and stressful: it gives you the opportunity to work with different types of people, to express your creativity, and to plan different types of events, but it also requires you to work under pressure, to meet deadlines, and to meet (or exceed) client expectations.
