Event Planning Emphasis
HRTM student Hannah Kamprath spent time in Luebben, Germany working for Der Spreewalder Dekoration and Event – Floristik, an event management company.

Do you see yourself planning and participating in amazing events like the Cannes Film Festival, College World Series, professional sporting events, concerts, conferences or corporate travel? If so, the HRTM Event Planning Emphasis will help you get where you want to be.

From the basics to the advanced elements of the industry you can specialize in the topics of events that are the most interesting to you. You’ll have the opportunity to cover topics such as budgets and site selection, contracts, vendors, negotiations, promotions, food and beverage management, weddings and conferences.

The UNL HRTM program is designed to allow you to apply what you have learned within an industry setting. In addition to gaining valuable experience, you will be building your resume and expanding your network of industry connections.
