The Event Planning program will provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary for a rewarding career creating beautiful events and providing long-lasting memories for guests and clients. Students will be equipped to design, plan and execute diverse events, from corporate meetings and conferences to social functions such as weddings and community fundraisers. Event planning is increasingly playing a role in many organizations in a vast number of industries and sectors.

The Event Planning program will immerse learners in all aspects of the event industry. Business courses in marketing, human resources and entrepreneurship will complement event courses in design, food and beverage and event operations, preparing students to be confident planning events in restaurants, hotels, resorts and convention centres.

This two-year hospitality diploma program will conclude with an experiential learning opportunity working alongside professional event planners and managers in a variety of industries and on-campus at Centennial College’s 20,000 sq. ft. Event Centre.

The program will include an innovative industry training and awareness certification, It’s Your Shift. The certification will equip graduates with crucial knowledge and provide current resources focused on sexual harassment prevention and safe practices for intervention as a frontline worker or manager. It will support graduates, as they enter the hospitality industry, to become a leader for the prevention of sexual harassment and contribute to the evolution of safe and welcoming work environments.
