Introduction to International Event Production
By Anna Robb
Ever wondered what it takes to produce an event internationally? What are the challenges of locations, cultures and work processes? Watch this 90 minute webinar to find out.
The best practices of producing events around the world can be as varied as the events themselves. Beyond the known markets of the UK, USA and Australia, regions including Asia and the Middle East present challenges and opportunities for passionate event professionals.
Join us to discuss the challenges of international event production and how patience, tolerance and mediation can be some of the skills to take you further in our exciting industry.
We will touch on the specific areas of producing that can be affected by the location’s working environment including budgeting, supplier sourcing, venue coordination and client relationships. Your skills and preconceptions will be challenged!
