The UK Centre for Events Management (UKCEM) recently welcomed experts in crowd safety, risk and counter terrorism strategies. Bringing together theory and practice, undergraduate and postgraduate students discussed the diverse range of skills, techniques and strategies needed to respond to and recover from major incidents at events.
In February 2019, undergraduates at the UK Centre for Events Management were asked to submit creative ideas for a display to be showcased at the Countryfile Live event at Castle Howard, Leeds. Winning student, Eleanor Rousell, reflects on this experience:
Final year students and staff from the school enjoyed an ‘End of Year’ Ball at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds.
Our Events Management student, Alex, talks to us about his experience on the course and his placement year in Florida.
We interviewed current Events Management student, Raj, to find out what studying on the course is really like.
“Inspiring to meet the future leaders of the events industry and share learnings that will hopefully help them navigate their future path!” – Leigh Jagger
Over 50 of our Events Management and Sports Events Management students signed up to take part in a global sustainability programme with Positive Impact.
Our third year Events Management students took part in a Futures Conference at the end of November.
We interviewed Mieke van Loenen, Director Events at ICCA to find out why they work closely with our School.
Congratulations to two of our final year Events Management students who received scholarships to attend the 57th ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association) Conference in Dubai.
