To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats
appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring PTS classes are commencing with
learning delivered in an online format.
Producing award-winning events with creative flair is any event professional’s goal. Event planners are often responsible for theme development- churning out new and unique event themes can be very challenging in today’s highly innovative world. A fantastic theme and the design and execution can turn an event from average to truly spectacular and memorable. You will learn approaches to theme development and how to ensure the selected theme matches the predetermined goals and attendee demographic of the event. You will also develop a range of skills that will help them to create event designs that will complement the selected event venue, establish appropriate decor and source out the best suppliers to successfully execute the event.
