Unit Information about the SITEEVT005 training material in this resource


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to plan the delivery of events or functions in a commercial venue. It requires the ability to identify customer operational needs and preferences, prepare and confirm event proposals, and finalise operational documents for the delivery of events.

This unit is relevant to events that are diverse in nature and are coordinated in many industry contexts, including the tourism, hospitality, sport, cultural and community sectors.

It applies to event coordinators who operate independently, and are responsible for making a range of operational decisions. They may work in commercial event or function venues, such as hotels, clubs, theatres, and convention and exhibition centres.
