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 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 is an ideal place in which to study events and conference management. A regular host of world class sports and culture events such as Wimbledon, the London Marathon, Notting Hill carnival and the London Fashion Week, as well as one-off mega events such as the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics games and the 2015 Rugby World Cup, London is widely recognised as a world events capital. With several hundred conference venues and an abundance of international business and leisure events, London is a world leader in this dynamic industry.

This course teaches you how and why events and conferences are planned and marketed. You will also learn how events and conferences contribute to enriching the lives of communities and improve communications in business, politics and professional life. The dissertation will give you further opportunity to research a conference or events topic in depth. The course is taught by experienced academics and industry practitioners, providing valuable insight into this exciting industry sector.
