Event Training Australia will soon offer a range of new event management short-course programs. These programs have their origin in the award-winning Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM), University of Technology Sydney’s (UTS) series of industry-based courses.

Dr Rob Harris, ACEM’s Hon. Director, will lead the programs following the announcement by UTS of the closure of ACEM at the end of 2017.

Event Training Australia’s new programs ensure the continuation of ACEM’s vital training role for event professionals, as well as those seeking to enter the industry. John Allen AM, former Australian Event Award Lifetime Achievement Award winner and author of the key text, Festival and Special Event Management, notes that:

  “…for almost 20 years ACEM has played a significant role in ensuring 

              those charged with conducting events are equipped with the skills and

             knowledge necessary to deliver events at the level of world’s best 

             practice. I therefore congratulate Event Training Australia and Dr Rob

             Harris for taking on the task of building on ACEM’s multi-decade legacy.”
