Description of module content:

This module engages students through allowing them to develop a practical, problem-solving approach to the management of events. The module opens by defining a range of festivals and events, and their contexts. Key functions of event design and management are then introduced and applied: both through the use of illustrative examples of different types and forms of events; and through students planning and implementing their own events. The growth, role and consolidation of the events industry in the UK are also considered. The major management functions of events are examined therefore with particular attention paid to areas including: event planning, experience design and staging, marketing, financial management and sponsorship, risk management, safety, and reflective evaluation of events.
