This qualification reflects the role of individuals who use a broad range of event-related skills and sound knowledge of event management processes to coordinate event operations. They operate independently and make operational event management decisions.

Events are diverse in nature and this qualification provides a pathway to work for event or exhibition organisations operating in a range of industries, including the tourism and travel, hospitality, sport, cultural, and community sectors.

The diversity of employers includes event or exhibition management companies, event venues, or organisations that organise their own events. Work could be undertaken in an office environment where the planning of events takes place, on-site at venues where events are staged or a combination of both.

Possible job titles include:
conference coordinator
event or exhibition coordinator
event or exhibition planner
event sales coordinator
function coordinator
in-house meetings coordinator
meetings coordinator
staging coordinator
venue coordinator.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
