Official Degree in Event Organisation, Protocol and Institutional Relations


Events and institutional relations currently play a key role in the strategy of all kinds of organisations: political parties, public institutions and private firms in a wide variety of sectors (tourism, fashion, music, banking, sport or the automotive industry, amongst others) choose to develop communication strategies and brand experiences which can allow them to establish closer relationships with their different audiences.

Thus, we can see how the demand for professionals highly specialised in the fields of Event Organisation, Protocol and Institutional Relations to recruit them for their departments is growing.

Event Managers are the professionals who, thanks to the utilisation of tools typical of marketing, communication or institutional relations, can design unique experiences which allow all kinds of organisations to strengthen their brand image.
