CDI College Opens the Door to Event Planning Careers

New Event Management Program Available at Toronto Campus

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 21, 2013) - January 18, 2013 - CDI College is keeping pace with market demand with its new Event Management program in Toronto. As organizations continue to recognize the value of face-to-face meetings in today's competitive economy, opportunities for skilled meeting and event managers are growing fast. With CDI College's Event Management program, students are qualified to take the lead in just 55 weeks.

Whether it's a private affair or a public event, event managers are responsible for every phase of an event, from registration to clean up. Working with industry professionals, students acquire the business skills they need to succeed, including financial accounting, contract negotiation, resource management, and sales and marketing.

The customer experience is one of the most important success factors for any event. The event manager is the person behind the curtain, creating a positive experience out of a myriad of details. From picking a winning location to selecting the perfect décor, food and entertainment, students learn how to exceed any client's expectations. Event planners also work in a variety of settings, from weddings and festivals to corporate events and tradeshows, and every event is different. Students prepare for this challenge, and integrate their new skills, by staging a series of real-life campus events.

The new Event Management program can provide the knowledge base needed to enter this dynamic career field. Applications are now being accepted for the Event Management program in Toronto. For more information call 1.877.404.4353 or visit
