The Executive Certificate Of Festival And Event Management Is Proud To Be Part Of The Middle East Event Show 2014

Middle East EVENT Show 2014 20 – 21 May 2014 JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai The Middle East’s event industry is all about fun and excitement, and with this in mind, we’ve decided to take the Middle East EVENT Show and turn it on its head! We’ve listened to what the industry has to say and have put together an event that focusses on knowledge sharing, education and networking while still providing a platform to sell products and services via six different, dynamic zones, each addressing a specific business objective. This isn’t an exhibition, it’s an event. It’s your event - We don’t mean to blow our own trumpets but the Middle East EVENT Show 2014 is going to be MARVELOUS, so what are you waiting for? GET INVOLVED!

Hear What People Have Said About This Course: This course was packed with really useful details and advice on how to run events more professionally. It was amazing how much was packed into the three days; the course manual reinforces all that was covered, and acts as a source for further learning and consolidation. The health and safety aspects, and risk analysis elements of the course were of particular interest, and areas that I think can often be overlooked. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone involved in events. Isobel Abulhoul, Festival Director, Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, UAE
