Event Planning & Protocol
This course contains two distinct but related sections. The first section will provide the students with a practical foundation in planning an event. Critical aspects of event planning will be discussed including themes, food and beverage planning, cost control, menus, quantity needs, service options, and room setup. In the second section, we will address key issues involved in protocol when planning hospitality events, including the proper use of titles, seating, levels of service and security. The purpose and role of media in organizing an event will also be discussed. This course is offered through OntarioLearn by the host college, Algonquin College.
