Workshops Deliver Event Management Tools
Published on 03 January 2019
How to build an engaging event, getting publicity, applying for grants and attracting sponsorship were just some of the topics covered when event management specialist King Events were in town recently to deliver Council sponsored Event Management Workshops.
As part of Council’s commitment to supporting events in the region, event management specialist, Belinda King from King Events delivered two engaging workshops designed to help new starters and experienced events coordinators, volunteers and committee members navigate all the opportunities and challenges of putting on a successful community event.
“Council is committed to supporting and organising initiatives to help assist local community groups and volunteers in their event aspirations”, Council’s Acting Director Phil Stone said. “We were pleased with the positive feedback from participants about the wealth of knowledge that was packed into the sessions”.
Participants representing successful community events such as Tumbafest, Ciderfest, Tumbatastebuds, Lanterns on the Lagoon and Festival of the Falling Leaf joined local business owners and individuals for the sessions held in both Tumbarumba and Tumut.
Participants walked away with a toolkit of resources to assist them in getting their new event ideas started, or to improve their already successful events.
Mr Stone said the workshops were also a chance for participants to ask questions of council’s event-support staff including how to apply for traffic management plans, and risk assessments and public liability insurance obligations.
