Events Management Knowledge is a new initiative created within the London Metropolitan University. It aims to work in partnership with commercial, public and charitable organisations to strengthen London's tourism, sports, hospitality and cultural industries. These sectors are of huge importance to London's future both as a business and cultural world hub. In particular, their continued development will be key to the success of the 2012 Olympic Games and post-event attractiveness to international investment and opportunities.
The EMK initiative has built considerable knowledge and expertise to provide specialised training and development in event management skills for UK and international companies and employees. The University's academic staff, many of whom themselves have practitioner experience, also provide a bank of networking opportunities and contacts with London’s key business sectors across private, public and third sector, to provide the highest quality learning and training on all courses provided.
