Events management is a challenging and ever-evolving field, made no less straightforward by recent global health concerns, and the universally increasing need for collaboration between partners, whether at the industry or national levels. While most have the impression that events centre around business-related matters, i.e., the MICE industry, there are also a great deal of events that deal with community outreach, publicity, or international efforts and the like. Furthermore, one must also consider that in events management, other work occurs in the background, often unnoticed from the front-end — skills such as marketing, communication, presentation proficiency, as well as logistics and financial planning all come into play.
