Designed to introduce students to the Incentive (Travel), Conference and Event (IC&E) industry and provide an overview of project management fundamentals essential to delivering an IC&E project. By having a sound understanding of the industry, stakeholders can better address the objectives of their clients, work more effectively with suppliers and deliver IC&E projects to the standards demanded by clients.

Incentive Travel differs from both Conferences and Events - it is used to harness the power of an incentive travel program to build a company’s business, improve profitability and generate sales.

In this unit, explore the world of conferences and meetings. You will consider the needs of the meeting owner/client, how these needs can be translated into measurable deliverables, how meetings are planned and finally delivered.

What every event concept needs, what makes an event concept special and what to do to get things started. The Brief. The Concept. The Pitch

An introduction to the financial, contractual and legal obligations associated with incentive, conference and event projects.
