Practical Event Management
Practical Event Management is a comprehensive guide to the applied aspects of event management. Students will learn a range of basic management skills: from task-oriented to people-oriented skills, to more specific project management and budgeting skills – all of which can be applied to the effective running of an event. In addition, students will be equipped with knowledge on producing proposals and tenders, which are valuable practical skills. Furthermore, students will be given the opportunity to explore the organisation and staffing of events, as well as the important logistics involved in the planning of an event. They will also be provided with knowledge on various technologies used at events, and gain an understanding of how to control various kinds of crowds at an event. The book will conclude by discussing the concept of closing down an event, and what it means to run an event sustainably.
