Professional Meeting and Event Planning

Event PlanningFor anyone new to meeting planning or seasoned meeting professionals looking to expand their knowledge and skills within this growing industry, this Digital Badge program provides you with skills in problem solving, negotiation, and project management that you will need to manage and deliver exceptional meetings and events and drive success for businesses and organizations. Topics include program scheduling and project management; creating special event management proposals; program planning including speakers, site inspections, negotiations and contracts; event marketing including exhibits and sponsorships; logistics such as transportation, catering and audiovisual technology; legal issues; and risk management.
