The Florida Festivals & Events Association invites students enrolled in Florida colleges and universities to enter our Inaugural Sunsational Collegiate Challenge.
This challenge encourages students to showcase their knowledge of festival and event planning and understanding of the industry by creating an event and accompanying vendor application.
Teams of 2-4 students will assemble to create a fictitious festival application in the Eventeny Event Management Platform using the outlined guidelines below.
