Post Graduate Diploma ( PGDM ) in Event Management

In the last 10 to 15 years, there has been enormous growth in the event management business. This is a way of outsourcing occasions that are either business, social or a combination of the two. Events can be as diverse as weddings to political rallies, and for any business meeting or social occasion that someone can think up, an event management team can be called in to organize it. Event management is considered one of the strategic marketing and communication tools by companies of all sizes. From product launches to press conferences, companies create promotional events to help them communicate with clients and potential clients. They might target their audience by using the news media, hoping to generate media coverage which will reach thousands or millions of people. They can also invite their audience to their events and reach them at the actual event.
