Diploma of Event Management – SIT50316
This qualification reflects the role of individuals who use a broad range of event-related skills and sound knowledge of event management processes to coordinate event operations. They operate independently and make operational event management decisions.
Events are diverse in nature and this qualification provides a pathway to work for event or exhibition organisations operating in a range of industries, including the tourism and travel, hospitality, sport, cultural, and community sectors.
The diversity of employers includes event or exhibition management companies, event venues, or organisations that organise their own events.

Possible job titles include:
- conference coordinator
- event or exhibition coordinator
- event or exhibition planner
- event sales coordinator
- function coordinator
- in-house meetings coordinator
- meetings coordinator
