Speakers and delegates who participated in Josoor Institute’s course titled ‘An Introduction to Running Major Events’, which concluded successfully on the 17th of September.

The course was oversubscribed with more than 70 delegates including professionals from the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, and local and regional federations who are bidding, organising or staging large-scale events were in attendance. The courses enabled participants to achieve an understanding of all key areas of major event management, highlighted potential challenges and shared ways they can be addressed. Josoor Institute ran the same course in December 2013 and repeated it today due to popular demand. Once again receiving high praise from delegates, the course is now being planned for a third time with dates to be confirmed.
