EMK partners with Australian university

Events Management Knowledge (EMK), an initiative of London Metropolitan University, has partnered with the Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM), based at the University of Technology, Sydney, to bring an Executive Certificate programme in Events Management to London for the first time in June.

The four-day internationally acclaimed Executive Certificate in Events Management has been delivered to over 5000 people in various locations around the world including Singapore, Edinburgh, Auckland, Beijing and Kuala Lumpur.

Taught by authors of major texts in the field, with the assistance of guest presentations by industry professionals, the programme encompasses the key skill and knowledge areas associated with event creation, planning, delivery and evaluation.

Graduates of the course are involved in the creation and delivery of the full range of corporate and public events, including product launches, conferences, major sporting events, seminars, festivals, exhibitions, parades and heritage-based events.

According to Rob Harris, Director of ACEM, London Met is an ideal partner  as the University is perfectly placed to play a major role in the development of the UK event industry through facilitating event related training and education.   Rob Harris added that:

‘Over the years, our programme has proven to be very successful mainly due to its ability to deal with the fundamental principals behind the event creation, planning and delivery process, and through a range of examples, show how these apply to various forms of events.’

EMK Director, Dr Robert Lentell, said he was delighted that London Met was ACEM’s exclusive London partner, and added that the course was just the beginning of what would be a long-term partnership that would include consultancy, research and facility for students to move between the institutions.

‘London Met is one of the largest universities for events management in leisure and tourism in London, so we are very pleased to be aligned with such a strong brand that is so well known and well networked in the events world,’ he said.

The Executive Certificate in Events Management will be held from 4th – 7th November 2008. For further information please contact Andrew Woods via eail on andrew.woods@londonmet.ac.uk
