Thinking of a career in Event Management?
Are you a good organiser? Do you enjoy planning? Do you pay attention to the little details that make all the difference? Are you always on the lookout for new ideas? If so – then perhaps you should consider a career in Event Management. Event management is about organising functions – large ones and small ones. 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 co-ordination. Understanding health and safety legislation. Knowing when you need licences or special permissions. Mostly, Event Management is about making creative ideas come to life and doing so professionally.
