SEVERAL Politeknik Brunei students got a taste of the lucrative business of event management after successfully organising a mini wedding exhibition yesterday, featuring some of the best-known real life wedding service providers in the country.
Held at the ground floor of The Airport Mall, the event was organised by a group of students called Crystalace.
Featured at the mini expo were providers of exotic wedding dais, photography and videography services and the latest designs in wedding attires for rent.
The expo was part of the students’ final year project, requiring them to conduct a real life business activity.
This is a compulsory module to be taken by 3rd year students in every study programme at Politeknik Brunei.
Politeknik Brunei Student Affairs Head Pengiran Hajah Nor Khairiah binti Pengiran Haji Hashim explained that this module provides students exposure and training in the field of entrepreneurship, allowing them to hone their skills from the planning to implementation stage of a real life project.
Meanwhile, Supervising Teacher Haji Yusriman bin Haji Jumat noted that the project would also expose students to the business climate in Brunei, which includes the intricacy in setting up such an event, thereby better preparing them for the working world after they have graduated.
The event received sponsorship from Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam Insurans Islam TAIB and several others.
