Today the new consumer needs, the evolution of the trade fair and event system and the new digital technologies require professionals capable of developing increasingly innovative solutions.

For this reason, this Master Course aims to train new professionals who combine the design approach of design with management, marketing and communication skills.

The method taught is that of design thinking, which is applied both to physical and digital spaces and to the interactions between different groups of clients and stakeholders of big events.

The Master’s training model is based on constant interaction with professionals in the field. Teaching is centred on theoretical/cultural subjects and on workshop activities that always imply the active and creative participation of the class.

This didactic formula finds its best expression in the organisation of project workshops that take place in collaboration with important companies, studios and agencies in the events, fairs and exhibitions sector.
The project envisages different teaching methods:

  • frontal teaching

  • conferences
  • guided tours of companies, fairs and events
