This textbook provides students with an essential introduction to the theoretical underpinnings and practicalities of managing the marketing of events.
In order to market events effectively, it is vital to consider marketing of events from the organiser’s perspective and to link it to that of the consumers attending events. As such, this is the first book on the topic which reflects the unique characteristics of marketing in the Events industry by exploring both sides of the marketing coin – the supply and the demand – in the specific context of events.

The use of technology, importance of sponsorship and PR are also considered. International case studies are integrated throughout to show practical realities of marketing and managing events and a range of useful learning aids are incorporated to aid navigation throughout the book, spur critical thinking and further students’ knowledge.
