Priava offers free venue and event management software for educational institutions

Priava offers free venue and event management software for educational institutions
September 22, 2016

To support the development and training of events professionals, leading cloud-based venue and events management software company Priava has announced that it is offering its technology to educational establishments in Australia, New Zealand, UK and USA free of charge.

Announcing the offer, Priava Chief Executive James Pegum stated “at Priava we believe in empowering the future generation of event professionals with the skills and tools that they need to be able to master the art of running a successful event and begin their careers with the experience that they need to hit the ground running.

“That’s why we are offering our cloud-based software as a free training tool for educational institutions that offer courses that focus on event and venue management.”

Marianne Fidel, Marketing & Student Relationships Manager at Kenvale College of Hospitality, Cooking and Events in the Sydney suburb of Randwick, one of the first colleges to take up the offer, commented “by offering the most up-to-date event management system free of charge is an invaluable service as it will enable students to learn how technology in a ‘real world’ events company operates.

“At the same time it will provide them with the ‘state of the art’ skills the industry needs for its new recruits.”

Fidel adds “we think this is important because event managers have a stressful job trying to record and manage so much detail about so many events.

“Providing students with a system like Priava that is easy to use and covers all aspects required for many different types of events can overcome these issues, enabling students to focus on delivering first class events.

“All event information can be kept up-to-date, in one place for easy access by all relevant staff which offers a more professional and efficient system for the Priava user and the client.

“This represents a huge benefit not only to the students but to the industry as a whole.”

According to Fidel, many students are already working in the industry in some capacity so it also gives them the opportunity to compare Priava to whatever system they currently use in their work situation.

Educational institutions who take up the offer will gain access to the following benefits:

• Full access to Priava - All schools will be offered unrestricted access to the suite of software for the purpose of training students throughout the school calendar.
• Five user licenses - User licenses can be shared by students so that they can all learn how to use the software and get first-hand experience
• Free eBook - Electronic copy of Priava’s eBook titled How venues can management events more effectively for all students.
• On-going support - Any support requests can be logged via email and must be sent by a system administrator (up to two hours support per month).
• Co-investment in training

To make sure students can experience all of the benefits that Priava has to offer, each educational institution wanting to take advantage of this offer will be required to a co-invest in a training package.
