The new Meetings, Incentives, Conventions & Exhibitions (MICE) industry landscape will require a whole new skill set, beyond that of the traditional event manager. As digital and hybrid events become new mainstream, event managers must develop digital literacy, and gain understanding of media and streaming technology. This course, co-developed with GEVME, will help you effectively plan, produce and measure results of digital events so as to be future-ready for the MICE industry in this new digital economy. GEVME is a Singapore-based virtual event platform.
