Event management students discover Singapore

Diploma of Event Management students from William Angliss Institute have completed an exciting five night international study tour of Singapore, with the intention of visiting a local festival, undertaking venue inspections, and experiencing local culture and tourist attraction sites.

 

Program Leader Events Corinne Maxfield said international study tours are a vital element in learning how to plan, fund, market and manage successful events.

"Being exposed to diverse cultures and international events promotes the ability of these students' to enhance the customer experience when designing their own events for industry,"Ms Maxfield said.

The students began their tour with a visit to the Singapore campus of William Angliss Institute. Industry Training Coordinator and former member of the operations team for the Singapore Grand Prix Adeline Rajamanickam, gave the group a presentation detailing her job requirements with the event, background history of the Grand Prix and its evolution over the years.

At the Singapore visitor centre, they attended a historical talk examining local architecture and its embodiment of Singapore’s diverse cultural identity and values. They were given a special behind the scenes look into this year’s Singapore Food Festival, including an exhibition displaying cultural cuisines. The opportunity provided them with a vital insight into onsite event management and project scheduling.

The busy schedule included three venue inspections of exclusive Singaporean hotels, including; the Parkroyal on Beach Road, Singapore Tang Plaza Hotel and the Ritz Carlton Singapore.

At each site, the group toured venue and function spaces, gaining valuable industry knowledge into the process behind planning meetings, conferences and private functions.

The Asia Outbound Mobility study tour to Singapore provided the Diploma of Event Management students with a fantastic opportunity to develop their industry knowledge in regard to Singapore venue spaces, events and destination attractions, as well as personal development in regard to cross cultural communication skills and confidence. This first hand international experience will add to their breadth of knowledge to benefit future employers and future career prospects,” Ms Maxfield said.
