Why should I study Events Management?

Events management is a fast-paced, high-pressure, yet exciting and rewarding career path. Depending on your interests you can organise events like weddings, corporate functions, fashion shows, exhibitions, concerts and even charity events.

People who gravitate toward a career in planning and coordinating events often say that planning is in their blood – they just can’t help taking control and planning events that wow; even if it’s just a family birthday!

Event planners are sociable and know how to make guests feel in awe of the event they are attending. They ensure that everything runs smoothly, that problems are sorted without bothering the host and know how to make it all seem effortless.

What is Events Management?

Events management is a very diverse field and it entails being in charge of organising any kind of party or function in a professional and efficient manner.

What do Events Managers do?

Events managers conceptualise, plan and organise events by:

  • Meeting with clients to get an idea of what they want.
  • Creating a concept, plan and budget for the event.
  • Procuring what is needed for the event - a venue, catering, entertainment etc.
  • Organising the logistics of the event; ensuring that all the different parts of the event work together in a timely manner.

Where to study Events Management?

College SA offers events management courses that vary in length, as well as the different aspects of events. You can choose to focus on general events management or planning specific kinds of events.
