Introduction

Events play an essential role in the business, cultural and sporting life of all countries. In recent years an exciting new profession has emerged with event planners designing and 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 event management. London is an ideal place in which to study events, with many venues on the doorstep. As a regular host of world-class sports and cultural 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 venues and an abundance of international business and leisure events, London is a world leader in this dynamic industry.

This course explores the strategic development, design and logistical organisation of many different types of events. You'll also learn how events and conferences contribute to enriching the lives of communities and improve communications in business, politics and professional life.
