What is event management?

Event management is the handling of all logistics leading up to and during an event. This includes organising and promoting the event, managing the guestlist and catering to the requirements of guests.

Event planners work across a wide range of industries, overseeing different types of conferences, seminars and conventions. With event planning courses, you learn how to successfully run events, both above the line, in terms of organisations, and below the line, with regards to financial planning.

You don’t need an undergraduate degree to become an event planner, although specialised training, such as a Pitman event management course, ensures you have the skills and knowledge required for a successful career in event management.

Not only can you learn at your own pace, either at home or in-centre, but all of our event planning courses are CPD-accredited. This means our qualifications are formally recognised by employers both in the UK and across the world.
