Educating Global Event Professionals

The UK Centre for Events Management has a dedicated team of multi-disciplinary and experienced academic staff.  We have a global reputation as a market leader in events management education, delivering stimulating courses across the breadth of events management - from festivals and cultural events, to international sport events and corporate launches.

As our industry faces unprecedented challenges with COVID-19, we continue to engage in government led forums and influence policy. We support our network of industry partners and our commitment to research. As a result, we are well positioned to continuously enhance our student experience as we all respond to the global pandemic.   

We produce award winning students and alumni with an international reach. Our links with industry partners and associations, such as International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), open up a world of opportunities for our students during their studies and following graduation. These great opportunities were reflected in the most recent National Student Survey (2020) when our students rated their overall satisfaction with their course at 91% (BA (Hons) Events Management and 90% (BA (Hons) Sports Events Management).

We focus on linking education with employment and inspire future leaders to transform practice, encourage critical thinking and make a positive contribution to the Events Industry.

“Many of the lecturers come from the industry themselves, so they can spot and nurture talent. Whilst VIP/Celebrity Liaison and Press Officer at the Zoological Society in London, I worked on two series of ITV documentary The Zoo, given David Beckham a tour and helped organise a gala dinner at which Usain Bolt was the guest of honour.”
