Creative Events Management students discuss the industry's future

Fri 6 Aug 2021

This September, MA Creative Events Management students are organising a virtual event on the theme of Global is Local: How does this relate to the future of the events industry?

The pandemic has caused seismic shifts in how we plan and execute events as well as how we view the world due to travel restrictions.

Online and hybrid event solutions have meant that the world is more accessible in terms of worldwide attendance at events but more limited in terms of travel and visiting other countries. 

Students on Falmouth Flexible's MA Creative Events Management will run a two-day online event from 17-18 September looking at some of the key topics relating to these changes in the events industry and what the future for the industry looks like. 

They will also discuss the topic of global events management and examine case studies from some major sports events to consider the impact of global events on local communities.

The event will be held online and will be a mix of networking, workshops and speaker presentations. 

Danielle Ward will lead a workshop exploring the world of sustainable events, looking at why it's important to integrate sustainability practices and how it's done in different countries. 

Danielle is founder of Reward Events - a sustainable event management company based in Kent, UK. 

Creative Events Management student Darlynne Overbaugh will lead a deep-dive session into what makes a virtual event tick, including a discussion of best practices and new platform discovery (Airmeet, Everytale, Gamiotics and TikTok).

Participants will come away from the session with fresh ideas and strategies for creating, planning and executing virtual events. 

Students will develop and run the entire two-day event themselves, from creating the agenda and contacting speakers, to hosting the event in the online platform. It's an incredible opportunity to gain first-hand experience of putting on a digital event.
