Exhibition, Conference and Event Management

Bring people together for fun, learning and exchange

As creative people with business administration and project management know-how, event managers turn an idea into a successful event. Whether trade fair, conference, sports event, theatre or concert – each sector has its own requirements, no one event is like any other. What they all have in common is that they must be planned, organised and implemented down to the smallest detail. And the coordination of participants, a plan B for all eventualities and the budget must always be kept in mind. So a really exciting job for talented organisers with strong nerves.

With a broad theoretical base refined in practice

At the DHBW Mannheim, our students learn everything they need to know about the whole range of organisational tasks involved in event management. In the diverse curriculum, commercial content such as marketing, human resources and statistics are combined with key training and specific event management modules such as trade fair construction, event marketing and technology or event psychology. The optional subjects Sports and Cultural Management allow students to further their knowledge of individual fields. With their corporate partner, our students can immediately apply their theoretical knowledge and specialise on a practical level.

Working in the event industry - exciting and secure at the same time

The industry not only offers creative challenges, but is also a strong economic sector with international appeal in Germany, with annual sales of more than 50 billion euros. And the trend is upwards. More and more people are taking part in sports and cultural events; conferences, trade fairs and exhibitions are in demand as never before, as are business and corporate events. Whether the path leads to work at an agency, event venues or sports clubs, anyone studying event management in Mannheim is taking a decision for a future-proof field with plenty of personal creative scope.
