The events industry is experiencing momentous global growth. The UK events sector currently contributes over £39.1 bn to the economy, thus driving continual demand for specialist graduates, who not only understand both the theories of business and events management but are also equipped with practical experience.

This synthesis allows students to develop and apply their knowledge, understanding and expertise.
