Upcoming Event Sector Workshops

The Event Development team at Events ACT is pleased to present two (2) free face-to-face workshops for the Canberra region’s festivals and events sector.

Following on from the success of our 2023 Bootcamp, these workshop sessions will once again be delivered by Linda Tillman and Cathy Treasure from rEVENTS Academy.

These sessions are designed to be interactive, allowing participants to gain practical and transferable knowledge while networking with other event organisers.

Session 1

Thursday, 2 May 2024 | 8:30am - 3:00pm

Events 101: A free face-to-face session focused on improving event management skills and setting strong foundations for event success.

This 1-day session will benefit both new and experienced event organisers.

NOTE: This session covers similar content to our 2023 Bootcamp, so is targeted at those who did not attend the session last year.

Topics covered will include:

  • Event trends.
  • Key ingredients to successful event planning.
  • Designing the event experience.
  • The role of Events ACT and other agencies.

Be sure to secure your place via the Registration Link by COB  Wednesday 17 April 2024.

Session 2

Friday, 3 May 2024 | 8:30am - 3:00pm

Master Class: Event Sponsorship and Revenue Sources

Topics covered will include:

  • Finances for the future: Budgeting, income streams and setting targets.
  • Sponsorship: Basic principles and setting your targets.
  • Sponsorship: Identifying your sellable assets and thinking outside the box.
  • Sponsorship: The proposal.
  • Sponsorship: The pitch.

NOTE: To ensure the best learning outcomes for attendees, the Event Sponsorship Master Class will have a limited capacity. As a result, Events ACT is implementing a very simple Expression of Interest (EOI) process for selecting attendees.

Please register your interest via the Expression of Interest (EOI) link by COB Wednesday 10 April 2024.

You will be notified via email (no later than Tuesday 16 April 2024) on the outcome of the EOI process.
