The Year 2 students from the Diploma in Integrated Events and Project Management (DEPM) went on a site visit to the Singapore Gifts Show at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre on 29 June 2016. 
As part of their out of classroom learning relating to the Public Relations module, the students were exposed to sourcing for suitable corporate hospitality and media gifts. They also looked at how the event utilised social media tools to garner more interest for the event.
The students were also required to source, evaluate and recommend suitable door gifts for a conference welcome dinner and to obtain relevant information from at least three different suppliers for their module in Project Management.
They were asked to observe how to reduce or recycle waste e.g. lanyards, brochures – where participants were encouraged to drop the used items into a recycling bin located at the exit of the Hall.
The respective module lecturers were also on-site to answer any student queries pertaining to the module requirement. Students felt that it was a fruitful and enriching experience where they were given an overall macro event perspective.
