Program description

Events management is a challenging and varied career where you can expect to work with areas as diverse as marketing, finance, human resources, health and safety and risk management, and be able to juggle several high priority tasks at once.

The role requires people who are level-headed and well organised but also enthusiastic, creative and dynamic. Teamwork is a crucial part of running any successful event and in your second year you have the chance to create, develop and manage your own live event as part of a team, working with real clients, venues and attendees.

Festivals, meetings, conventions, exhibitions and sports events all make up the events industry, and you will have plenty of opportunities to get a feel for different kinds of event from familiarisation visits, site visits and attending live events, as well as from expert guest speakers.

You will also get some hands-on experience working for a variety of clients at locations and venues across the country. Liverpool is well known for its thriving events scene. Events such as Sound City, Summer Pops, the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and the Clothes Show Live put Liverpool on the map as a big player in the events industry.

Venues like the Echo Arena, Anfield Stadium and St George's Hall have attracted events such as the MOBO Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards and Four Nations Rugby League Final.

LJMU has cultural partnerships with big names in the events industry, including the Tate, Everyman Theatre and Light Night. These partnerships give our students unique opportunities in the events sector, as well as discounts and exclusive offers.
