    EVENT MANAGEMENT


    SAQA ID: 99647 | NQF Level: 7 | Credits: 380| Course Duration: 3 Year

    COURSE INTRODUCTION

    Event managers are needed in almost any kind of business – entertainment, finance, government, retail, fashion, sport and music. Their day to day job may be filled with a range of exciting challenges. Event management is the co-ordination, running and planning of all the people, teams and features that come together to create any kind of event. Events usually require many different teams to come together, often involving several external suppliers. Successful events depend on team members, flexibility and a commitment to good cross-team communication. If you love being part of a team and working with people to create something unique, events could well be the path for you.

    An event management team needs strong leadership to perform at its best. Negotiations between clients, suppliers, companies or venue staff require flexibility, quick thinking, buckets of initiative and exceptional decision making. A particular ability to spot good compromises and to know what is essential to the success of the event marks out an excellent event team leader. Furthermore, South Africa has become a popular venue for staging international sporting events such as football, cricket, and
    rugby. The wedding industry alone is known to be a multi-billion rand market. Therefore, qualified students will be able to follow a career in wedding planning and co-ordination, or other fields of specialisation such as adventure event management, sporting or political event management and exhibitions and trade shows.
