Event Management Apprenticeship Standard – Event Assistant

Introduction

Events cover a broad range of activities as well as sizes, from small numbers of attendees through to thousands. Around 75% of events are conferences, meetings, trade shows and exhibitions. Other events include outdoor events, cultural events, sporting and music events. Companies use events to bring together different groups of people: from employees attending a sales conference; to customers or suppliers attending the launch of a new product; to shareholders gathering at a conference designed to attract new investors. The Events apprenticeship is ideal for those either looking to enter or to further their knowledge in working in events.

The events organised may be for the company where the Event Assistant is working, or could be for a variety of different clients including large corporations, smaller companies and not for-profit organisations.
