Unit Information about the SITEEVT008 training material in this resource


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to analyse event staging requirements and organise and monitor different staging services and products. It requires the ability to use advanced planning, organisation and communication skills combined with detailed knowledge of the event management process and broad understanding of specialist component services.

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 event management companies, in event venues, or in organisations that organise their own events.

The unit does not cover the high levels of technical expertise required to provide individual specialist services, such as catering, audio visual or technical, creative and sporting services. It is also distinct from staging specialisation units that apply to staging technicians and stage managers in the entertainment industry.
