Description

Now in its fourth edition, this tried-and-tested guide for both students and practitioners combines a rigorous theoretical grounding with practical insights into every aspect of the organizing and running of events. Presented in two engaging parts: Part 1 provides a comprehensive overview of the events business including market demand for events, the role of suppliers and the social and economic impact of the event business. Part 2 focuses on aspects of event organization including planning an event, financial management, logistics, legal aspects, marketing, public relations and legacies. The text considers event management from an international perspective, with a particular focus on Europe but also encompassing the Middle East and Africa. Successful Event Management is essential reading for all undergraduate and post-graduate event management students and is also an ideal resource for active practitioners looking for both a practical guide and a rigorous overview of the subject. CourseMate includes an integrated eBook and interactive teaching and learning tools including quizzes, flashcards, videos, and more.
