PolyU SPEED collaborating with Lafayette Wedding to hold professional talk and
launch new course in “Introduction to Event Management and Wedding Planning”
to address the rising market demand for one-stop wedding planning service
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University-affiliated School of Professional Education and Executive Development (PolyU SPEED) held a Professional Talk on Event Management and Wedding Planning on the PolyU West Kowloon Campus on 16 October 2014. Mr Stan Tang, Chief Executive Officer of East Ocean‧Victoria City Restaurant (HK Group) and Chairman of Lafayette Wedding; and Mr Hamson Wai, Account Director of Ad Target Event Management Limited, were invited as guest speakers to introduce the latest trend of the local wedding industry, and to share the experience of providing one-stop wedding service in the market.
Following the talk was a signing cum cheque presentation ceremony among PolyU SPEED, East Ocean Restaurant and Lafayette Wedding. PolyU SPEED was grateful to East Ocean Restaurant and Lafayette Wedding for their generous sponsorship of HKD200,000, which will support two PolyU SPEED students to join the School’s “Summer Internship Programme (Dubai) 2015”.
Mr Stan Tang said, “Wedding is one of the most important events in one’s life. Many couples are willing to spend a fortune on an extravagant wedding to make their ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ event memorable. Moreover, couples nowadays are more aware of the importance and value of a comprehensive and professional wedding planning service, saving them time and efforts. In face of the rising demand for one-stop wedding planning service, Lafayette Wedding collaborates with PolyU SPEED to introduce a new course on event management and wedding planning, nurturing talents for the industry.”
“Wedding planning is closely related to the hospitality and travel industry, and we have long been supporting the education sector. We are pleased to note that PolyU SPEED’s ‘Summer Internship Programme (Dubai)’ provides students with opportunities to gain overseas working experience and helps broaden their horizons. It indeed dovetails with our group’s vision,” Mr Tang added.
The brand new short course on “Introduction to Event Management and Wedding Planning”, co-organised by PolyU SPEED and Lafayette Wedding, aims at training professional event and wedding planners for the market. Students will learn the basics of event management and wedding planning, and understand that event management has a significant role in the hospitality and travel industry. Placement would be offered to provide students with practical working experience and enhance their understanding of the real business operation. The course will commence in late October/early November and is now open for application. For enquiries, please call 3400 2828.
