An apprenticeship in events management provides you with training and qualification in a fast developing sector with a wide range of employment options. The skills learned cover everything from the initial research and planning, through to the organisation and implementation of the event, and finally the clean-up and evaluation.
Event management projects can range from the small and initimate, for example a business breakfast or gallery opening, to the massive, like music festivals such as Glastonbury or sporting events like the Olympics and similar. And it is also a sector that can lead to great travel opportunities.
A market study by the Events Industry Forum for the UK government estimated that the value to the UK economy of events was in the region of £37billion in 2012 and was expected to grow to £50 billion by 2020. To reach these figures they included: Conferences and meetings, Exhibitions and trade shows, Incentive travel, Corporate hospitality, Outdoor events, Festivals and cultural events, Music events and Sports events. The number of businesses operating in the sector was estimated at 25,000 (2012) and the number of people employed at 530,000 (full time equivalent).
