This advanced certificate course is designed to equip experienced event and meeting managers with the tools, resources, and business savvy to serve as a strategic advisor in designing, planning, and executing programs. Expanding on foundational and fundamental skills in event and meeting planning for in-person events, learners will explore progressive approaches to apply program strategy development, market analysis, budgeting, ROI measurement and analytics, content and engagement design, marketing, elements of project management, and stakeholder management techniques for any event, whether in-person, virtual or hybrid.
Who is this course for?
We designed this course for experienced event and meeting professionals looking to elevate their program design, strategy, and stakeholder management skills in planning and executing multi-channel events, especially with the growing rise of varying event types and levels of complexity. At the end of this course, each learner will have developed a complete, end-to-end or full-cycle event/meeting strategy.
Are there any pre-requisites?
To be successful in this course, we recommend that learners have mastered the foundations and fundamentals of planning in-person and virtual events and meetings. Prior completion of ELI’s Event & Meeting Management Fundamentals (EMMF) or Virtual Event & Meeting Management (VEMM) is recommended, however not required. Alternatively, prior knowledge of in-person, virtual, and multi-channel (hybrid) event concepts, terms, and strategies is recommended.
During the course, you will have access to your instructor during regular office hours to ask questions about the content and application to your day-to-day work. You will also become a part of a peer-based community forum to exchange ideas, network, and engage with other members of the learning cohort.
