On Friday, 15th March 2019 the Centre for Events Management Training together with the Diploma Class of Spring 2019 organised and planned another very successful wedding event. Over 50% of a hotel’s Food & Beverage revenue is generated from weddings, banquets, events, meetings and catering and at HTMi we place an important emphasis on event management at all levels in order to prepare our students for the exciting and challenging world of hotel events management.
As part of their events management course, our second year students were tasked with the organisation, planning and management of our bi-annual Wedding Event. The event allows the students to gain necessary knowledge and experience in the management of a hotel event and give them the opportunity of using their theoretical knowledge in the classroom by putting into practise and develop their leadership skills and use many of the management objectives by directing teams of students.
The theme they chose for this semester was “Bohemian” and this theme was reflected in the beautiful décor created by the students as well as the menu also planned by the students. The Diploma students were divided into certain departments and took the responsibility as managers to prepare, organise and perform this event. Throughout the entire process they received excellent and continues support from our Certificate and Postgraduate students. We would like to congratulate all of them for their amazing performance and contribution in creating another successful and memorable wedding event.
