Defining Event Management
“Events are temporary occurrences …They have a finite length, and for planned events this is usually fixed and publicized.”

“A unique moment in time celebrated with ceremony and ritual to satisfy specific needs.”

Activity: (10min)

What are the benefits of planning?

“Because of the unique nature of each special event, planning is a process that must continuously occur from the start of the bid [initial idea] until the end of the event [evaluation and feedback]”

strategies and tactics needed to achieve
