The UAE has become one of the most favored destinations in the world. Home to super luxury hotels, massive shopping malls, and unique theme parks, Abu Dhabi and Dubai are two of the most desired locations for either conducting business or implementing marketing strategies.

The national economic scenario is burgeoning with potential, and is poised to grow now that the country is hosting the Expo 2020. For those involved in the business of managing events, conferences, product launches, and what have you, things have never looked better.

Realizing the benefits of this, more students now opt to study event management as a subject. Learning the tools of the trade is essential as it lays the ground rules for making an event not only successful but also recurrent. 

Moreover, workshops, certificates, and college courses enable students to adopt best industry practices, meticulously understand budgeting and pricing, and manage teams and other personnel. 

Schools like The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management and EMDI Institute of Media & Communication in Dubai offer diploma courses in event management. Tuitions vary from Dh2,500 to Dh21,000, and beyond. 

The EMDI course brochure on event management mentioned that “the event management course trains students in all aspects of the event management business (creative, marketing, production, technical), and exposes them to all types of events.”
