ILEA Project Briefing:

We are so delighted you registered for this 21st edition of the Event Design Certificate Program and can’t wait to welcome you to our online program on Thursday 25 June 2020. This page will be the microsite for this program. This page is being updated at regular intervals as the program progresses.


The “Get to know each other” took place on June 17, 2020 at 12:00 Eastern Time. Please find the recording below:

To stay in touch in the next weeks and months have created a Whatsapp group to which you’ve already been invited.

Below a snippet of the questions, we typically ask participants to consider prior to the first official day of the program. You have some time to think about this and we ask you to please prepare your answers for the introduction session on the first day :

  1. What you are working on these days? (Briefly describe your current job or projects)
  2. Why have you decided to join the EDC program? (Please be brief and informative)
  3. After obtaining your EDC, what would be your ideal outcome one year from now? (In an ideal world, when I am a CED-Certified Event Designer I will have achieved ____)
  4. What Event Design Project would you like to work on for EDC? (please prepare a 2-minute pitch of the project you would like to design for EDC)
  5. Is there anything else we should know about your coming to EDC?

We would be delighted if you would create your “Experience Journey” to EDC for this program. We leave it up to you (and your creative mind) to present that in an original way to your fellow participants.

Who is coming and what is the schedule?

We will be using Zoom to connect so please have a well lit working space on a desktop or laptop computer with audio and video ready to go. We ask for all participants to join this session from a laptop or desktop (no phone line participation or mobile devices please) using a modern browser (we recommend to use Chrome) so we can all see each other and work collaboratively together. If you would like some practice to discover more about Zoom and Mural be sure to reach out to your coach for further instructions and practice.

We will be collaborating visually on Mural in our classes, and also for your project work in the six months after the program.

We have created the first mural with the program outline as well your fellow participants, coaches and trainer’s LinkedIn profiles.

You can check it out by clicking on this link or on the Mural below.

You will be able to edit this mural. 

Suggested Pre-reading 

If you haven’t already gotten your hands on a copy of the Event Design Handbook you will receive one as part of your registration. You can get started reading the first 100 pages (for free) whilst you wait for the full Event Design Handbook 204-page copy to arrive in your mailbox. It will certainly come in handy in your future life as an Event Designer.
