VOLUNTEERING

Volunteering is a wonderful experience. It provides a great opportunity to get work experience in a different industry, learn new skills, make contacts and meet new friends.

  • Have an opportunity to explore your interests with like-minded people
  • Be part of a team and a community
  • Get free accommodation at world class events

 MICRO INTERNSHIPS

Our new Micro Internship offers an exclusive insight into all aspects of the event and its organisation. Open to students and individuals trying to develop their experience in Event Management, this is a short but intensive course covering all areas.

  • Learn about operations management
  • The role of other agencies and event permissions
  • Assets and purchasing
