Virtual internship launches for event management students


Budding event profs are invited to take part in this virtual event.

Budding event professionals won’t have to miss out on first-hand industry experience during COVID-19, as a new virtual internship initiative launches next week.

Event management specialists Event Planet have launched the series after realising many event management students won’t get the opportunity to complete a professional internship this year.

According to Event Planet production director Monique O’Callaghan taking part in an internship was invaluable to her degree.

“What better way to experience the industry than to dive headfirst into an agency,” she said.

“For me, it was all about finding who I wanted to be as an event professional.

“Today, we fear many university and college students now find themselves at a crossroads, perhaps even questioning if there will be an industry to enter once they complete their studies.”

To ease some of their worries and provide valuable insight into the industry, Event Planet has created The Breakout, a virtual internship experience for event students.

In partnership with Austage Events, the one-hour event will be delivered in a live-streamed session on 3 August 2020 and will feature a series of guest speakers.

Amy Merriman, managing director at Event Planet; Aaron Dart, general manager NSW at Austage Events and Darren Taylor, director at Harvest by Darren Taylor will each present on key event management topics, before taking part in a live Q&A moderated by Spice Magazine and A LIST Guide editor Brittney Levinson.

Amy Merriman, Aaron Dart and Darren Taylor will speak on the panel

Students at University of Technology Sydney, Torrens University and International College of Management, Sydney are invited to attend, while other universities or colleges are invited to share their interest in participating.
