TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Institute of Wedding & Event Design (IWED) has established itself as the leading hands-on wedding and event design instructional and certification course. This unique, hands-on training program will teach course participants industry basics and critical advantages such as how to design, put up and take down backdrops, drape ceilings, tables, and ceremonies for events and weddings. Course participants will also learn skills to successfully market and operate an event business.
“The event industry is currently lacking an accredited organization dedicated to training event décor professionals,” said James Lester, IWED Creative Director. “It is our mission to properly train draping and décor techniques, as well as event logistics. We are excited to be teaching a diverse set of students from around the world.”
Response to the class offerings has been incredibly strong from around the globe.
