About this unit

This unit aims to identify the scope and scale of events then emphasise their importance, either as a catalyst for economic development, or as a generator of social cohesion. The next stage of the unit is to examine the multi-faceted functions of event management from conceptualisation, through to planning, risk management, and marketing. Finally, students will highlight both positive and negative impacts of events and advance sustainability as an overarching objective.
