norms and values
, the masses have decided to embrace others culture; it 'broadens the mind'.

Goldblatt (2005) states that event management is a profession where success or failure depends on communication.
For an event to be successful, any issues that could have caused any potental problems need to be resolved working collaboratively and productively.
The magic moment which features in event business is when everyone realises that only collaboration from this point onwards will enable the event to meet its deadlines.
