TOPIC THE EDUCATION INITIATIVE OF THE EVENT INDUSTRY --> for a better quality of training & education --> for fair training conditions --> for more attractive training occupations --> for the future of the event industry Help us to improve training and education in the event industry, so that future events of all kinds are still going to be organised and realised professionally, safely and with dedication. Trade fairs, congresses, conventions, concerts and marketing events – many young people feel attracted by the variety of employment opportunities and are interested in working for companies in the event industry.
COURSE OUTLINE become an event manager or event technician exists and in the meantime has been completed successfully by many school graduates. Over the past couple of years, the requirement profile has changed significantly: More demanding visitors and customers with a high expectation level, increased competition, changing legal regulations and official requirements – not only concerning the topic of safety. To train means to assume responsibility – Assuming responsibility is a question of honour. Only well-trained young people have the opportunity to shape the event industry and lead it successfully in the future. By getting a substantial knowledge transfer from specialists from all relevant operational fields – in their respective companies as well as in vocational school – the apprentices are well prepared for their future career. Only when a professional training is guaranteed, future employers can rely on the standard of knowledge of young professionals. To ensure and improve the vocational training within the companies of the event industry as well as in school, the EVVC initiated an education codex which has been developed together with event industry trade associations AUMA, VPLT and FAMAB. This codex is intended to highlight the most important components of event management and event technician training in concise guidelines and at the same time appeals to all companies to stick by those guidelines to guarantee a constant quality of training. Also, the authors of this codex advocate for a high quality level of vocational school education as well as a cooperation of both places of learning.
