Uni forum hosts employers

The University of Greenwich staged an Employers Forum this month to discuss the future of the UK events industry and its training requirements.

The event took place at the south London University on 7 March and attracted employers from both the agency and client side of the industry, as well as representatives from recruitment agencies and event management trainers.

As Event went to press Jon Hopwood, programme leader of the university's event management degree course, said he hoped the forum would also generate discussions on the importance of developing standards for the events industry.

"We want to get feedback from the workplace about event education and how we can make that process more credible," said Hopwood.
