How do I take my events career to the next level?


I’m an events manager working in the marketing department of a local university and am responsible for organising a multitude of regular small- to medium-scale university events. I’ve been doing this for over five years now and really want to take my career to the next level by getting involved with managing some of Hong Kong’s flagship spectacular events – things like Art Basel or the upcoming Formula E. My concern is that I don’t have experience organising anything on that level and that hirers will be looking for people who can demonstrate dealing with the complexity of such events. How do I make my dream come true?
