Priava offers free venue and event management software for educational institutions in Australia, New Zealand and UK

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

CEO at Priava, James Pegum commented, “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 , 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.”

Marianne continues, “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. Any system that makes an event organiser’s job that much better has to be worth it!  This represents a huge benefit not only to the students but to the industry as a whole.” According to Marianne 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.

Brigid Treloar, Kenvale College Events Lecturer added, “From what I have seen and used of Priava, I find the software intuitive, which makes it easy to use. I realise I am not utilising Priava to its full advantage but hope this will come with more practice. I use Priava at work at Zest Waterfront Venues so might be a little biased!”  

Benefits to educational institutions
Educational institutions who take up the offer will have 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.
• 5 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 manage 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 (max. 2hrs support per month).
