The Event Management program at Seneca is unique within Ontario in that it will provide you with a specialization in design for the event and exhibit industry (galas, festivals, parades and trade shows). Aimed at giving you the necessary breadth and depth of knowledge, you will learn analysis, planning, budgeting, sourcing and creation of décor, props and visuals for events and exhibits. You will benefit from industry professionals who have designed the curriculum and deliver it from a practical perspective. They bring their many years of experience in design, special events and exhibit management to assist you in getting the education you need to succeed in a competitive and growing industry.
