Events Management has often been viewed as a poorer relation to “project management of events” but with a growing number of events management organisations looking to strengthen their project management capabilities, the events project manager is up-skilling in many ways.

Increasingly organisations are using recognised project management techniques, processes and tools to plan, organise and deliver a wide variety of events – this a marked change for the events management industry and one which is attracting more and more professional project managers.
