Up and coming event managers living across the State will have the opportunity to benefit from one of 18 scholarships funded by the NSW Government and delivered in partnership with Meetings and Events Australia.
Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the scholarships are a fantastic opportunity for anyone wanting to upskill and achieve their career goals within the events industry.
“The scholarships directly support and encourage job creation by helping aspiring event managers to obtain the tools needed to succeed in the industry,” Mr Ayres said.
“Whether you are already working in tourism or events, or looking to jumpstart your career, this program provides a platform to further develop your skills in a field that injects big dollars into our economy.”
Chair of Meetings and Events Australia Nigel Collin said maintaining and building excellence in the meetings and events space was critical as more and more event organisers choose to do business in regional NSW.
“We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with the NSW Government to offer a further 18 applicants a Diploma of Event Management,” Mr Collin said.
“This a wonderful opportunity for students to further their career while contributing to the growth of their local economy, and I encourage those living in regional areas to apply soon.”
The Diploma of Event Management will be delivered by Meetings and Events Australia via an online learning tool, enabling students to access the program remotely and complete the tasks at their own pace.
Scholarship applications are now open and close on Sunday 4 July 2021. For more information and to apply for a scholarship, visit meetinnsw.com.au/scholarships.
