Virtual events platform GEVME has launched a brand new Digital Event Management course, conducted in collaboration with Nanyang Polytechnic’s Center for Industry and Lifelong Learning.
This course comes as part of NYP’s ongoing educational partnership with GlobalSign.in (GEVME’s parent company) to nurture Singapore’s business events industry capabilities and foster the next generation of event managers.
The two day-long course will be held on October 21-22, 09.00 to 17.00 at Nanyang Polytechnic. All Singaporeans aged 25 and above can use their SkillsFuture Credit to subsidise the course fee. Participants will be awarded a certificate upon completion of the course.
Targeted at current and aspiring event professionals, meeting planners and marketing executives, the Digital Event Management course will equip attendees with fundamental skills needed to get started in the emerging field of virtual and hybrid events. The curriculum will cover key learning areas including but not limited to:
● Managing virtual event stakeholders
● Designing a virtual venue
● Providing value to sponsors and exhibitors
● Fundamental digital skills like live streaming and data privacy
● Event monitoring and post-event reporting, and more
According to the whitepaper “Reimagining Business Events – Through Covid-19 and Beyond” by STB, PCMA and UFI, as the global events sector experiences accelerated digitalisation, multiple facets of the business event industry must transform: reimagining the business models, the delegate experience – and the talents and capabilities of those building and executing events.
“As the events industry reinvents itself, the role of the event manager will evolve. Alongside core skills in event management, the digital event managers of the future will need to develop flexible and diversified skill sets to manage new multi-modal event formats,” said Veemal Gungadin, CEO of GEVME.
“In developing this course, we gathered the insights and best practices of event professionals, our partners and other industry actors – to give learners a comprehensive overview of the skills they need to effectively successfully plan, produce and measure the results of virtual events.”
