The Academy will according to the firm help leaders and operators with planning and running complex largescale events. Alongside capability transfer, the Academy will also support learning objectives through research, thought leadership and the sharing of knowledge, learnings and insights at events.

“We are really excited to launch the Trivandi Academy. It provides a unique opportunity to share our team’s in-depth experience of planning and operating more than 260 global major events over the last decade, together with the knowledge and expertise of over 2,000 subject matter experts in our network,” said James Bulley, the CEO of Trivandi.

Alison Giles has been appointed as Director of the Academy, who described the launch as “a hugely exciting moment for the major events industry”.

“This is just the starting point as we embark on our journey to help professionalise the world of major events. We are looking forward to working with our industry colleagues to create a better ecosystem and improve the way major events are delivered for the better,” she said.

The first training to launch under the Academy is Major Events 101, which provides solid grounding in the planning and operations of complex events and is Level 3 accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Over the course of 2024, more training modules are expected to be added.
