Course content

Events and conferences play an essential role in the business, cultural and sporting life of all countries. In recent years an exciting new profession has emerged with conference/events planners and managers organising a diverse range of events, and marketing the great variety of destinations and venues in which they take place.

This recently updated and revalidated course is specifically designed for people who want to enter, or make further progress in, management-level careers in the fast-expanding field of events and conferences. London, which hosted the 2012 Olympic Games so memorably, is an ideal place in which to study events and conference management. With several hundred conference venues and an abundance of international business and leisure events, London is a world leader in this dynamic industry.
