Welcome to the online resources accompanying Events Management: An introduction by Charles Bladen, James Kennell, Emma Abson and Nick Wilde

Contemporary events management is a diverse and challenging field. This major new introductory textbook is the first to fully explore the multi-disciplinary nature of events management, and provides students with all the practical skills and professional knowledge needed to succeed in the events industry.

The book covers every type of event studied on an events management course, including areas as diverse as sports, music, the arts, corporate events, tourism, and the public and voluntary sectors. It introduces all the key issues facing the contemporary events industry, from health, safety and risk management to sustainability and developing a market-oriented business, with every topic brought to life through vivid case studies, personal biographies and examples of best practice from the real world of events management.
Written by a team of authors with many years’ experience working in the events industry, the book introduces the practical skills required in every core functional area of events management, including marketing, finance, project management, strategy, operations, event design and human resources.

Events Management: An introduction is the essential course text for any events management programme.
