What is the difference between the Event Design Course and the Event Planning Course?
There is a distinctive difference between an event planner and an event designer. The event planner is involved in every aspect of the logistical project management of the planning process and the event itself; however, it is the event designer that designs the event details from top to bottom, including the design surrounding the activities that make an event come to life. In many cases it is the designer that extracts the emotional and personal elements of a client and weaves those personal expressions into the event design. A wedding planner taking this course will learn the art of design and how to apply design techniques to their existing knowledge and services to their clients.
