Trotting the home straight to an events degree
Bachelor of Event Management students experienced first-hand luxury when they visited the Victorian Racing Club, touring the site and witnessing all the precinct has to offer.
The site visit showcased the inner workings of the Club, giving students an insight into the enormity and complexity of the venue, highlighting the adjustments made in a post-lockdown environment.
Touring the new upgrades within the precinct, the 20 students heard from VRC executives on key event management issues and adapting to COVID-normal, all topped off with a tasty lunch in Saintly Place.
Bachelor of Event Management student Callum Mitchell said the tour highlighted the road to industry recovery for major events. "Hearing from experts on how events are being reimagined and reshaped in response to COVID-19 was eye-opening," he said.
The first site visit since the onset of the pandemic, Event Management Lecturer Dr Effie Steriopoulos said it provided a welcomed opportunity for students to engage with fellow peers and industry. "The presentations focused on the road to mass event recovery and provided key insights into event transformation," she said.
Combining study with work placements and industry-based trips, Angliss events students are well prepared to thrive in this growth industry and are pleased to once again benefit from the industry connections William Angliss Institute has to offer.
