Course introduction

Event Managers are responsible for every aspect of producing events, from the pre-planning stages to after event activities. This entails generating ideas for events, finding and securing the venue, planning and coordinating the catering, entertainment, arranging transportation, lodging, and other guest hospitalities. Event Managers are responsible for handling the budget, troubleshooting any problems that arise, hiring and supervising supporting staff, keeping the client informed of event progress and the marketing and promotion of events. Once the events are over, managers are often required to generate reports and an analysis to help the client judge whether the event was successful.

In this course, you will learn about the job of an Event Manager. Event Managers are in charge of the execution of various gatherings, from weddings, birthday parties, and religious celebrations, to conferences, galas, and large-scale presentations. Event Managers must be master organizers, be proactive and should have the foresight to anticipate and solve problems quickly.

This course is suited, but not limited, to anyone interested in event planning.
