“This is an exhausted approach to learning about event management and creation, and will be an invaluable to those that attend the course, particularly in the private event sector.
The events industry is a highly dynamic one, and at ILEA we advocate continual learning by eventprofs to ensure they stay relevant and at the cutting edge of marketing and sales communication. This course is one that can be used both for initial insight, but also as a revision course for seasoned professionals.”
