An event manager is defined as ‘ the person who plans and executes the event, taking responsibility for the creative, technical and logistical elements. This includes overall event design, brand building, marketing and communication strategy, audio-visual production, script writing , logistics, budgeting, negotiation and client service’

From early days when events were merely large banqueting events, and the industry unstructured, today the market is valued at $3.25 billion (2013) and the average event planner earned $45,260** (bureau of Labor and Statistics)

In India the industry is slated to grow at a CAGR of 15.2 % touching Rs 1661 billion by 2017.** Fountainhead

The program is designed to help students to be ready for this exponential growth.
