Students from the Event Management program were able to secure a grant from the Be World Ready program at Niagara College to attend The Special Event in Orlando, Florida. The BWR grant allows students to combine their classroom learning with real world experiences.
The Special Event (TSE) tradeshow and conference was from January 11-15, 2016. Christine Blane, Coordinator and Professor in the Event Management program, travelled with 14 Event Management students who had the opportunity to connect with over 5,000 event management colleagues, exhibitors and mentors. They learned from key note speakers during education sessions, attended showcasing events and browsed through thousands of products on the exhibit hall floor while shadowing some key event planners from around the world.
