From a global event like the St. Patrick’s Festival to regional food and sport weekends, public celebrations and festivals, event management has evolved into big business.  This growth nationally and internationally has been fuelled by the increase in the number, size and sophistication of events.  Ireland has a thriving events sector which hosts exciting and varied events and festivals all throughout the year.

Event managers are needed to generate event ideas and facilitate them professionally.  Studying this course will give you practical and theoretical skills in all aspects of event management.   The event manager oversees and arranges all aspects of the event.  Students become knowledgeable in areas such as event planning and design, marketing, sponsorship, staging and health and safety.
