Bernardette Quinn presents in her book an interesting perspective on events management, with an integrated overview of every single phase of the management process as well as the impacts created in the community....This book, indeed, makes a worthwhile contribution to the field of events management by bringing together in one single volume case studies and examples of different kinds of events worldwide, namely the ones related to the European city of culture, Festivals, Olympic Games or Sport events.
Every student of planned events has to be aware of what others are doing and saying, so a book of this nature is essential reading.
Festivals and events constitute a major area of policy and practice at local, regional and national levels and yet academic explorations of their social, cultural and economic contributions are still in their relative infancy. This volume is to be hugely welcomed as it introduces, defines and reviews the key concepts in a thoroughly accessible way for both students and researchers alike. I anticipate that this will quickly become a key reference guide for events students everywhere.
Provides a valuable resource for students wanting to clarify terms and to delve deeper into the supporting literature. A useful text for Events courses which considers event concepts from an international perspective and provides links to a number of studies in the event management field.
Multidisciplinary in its scope, this book traces key meanings, practices and policies in a sophisticaed and accessible way.
This is an excellent introduction to a wide range of important concepts that inform the academic analysis of events and festivals.
This book is clearly elucidated and the information is very accessible. It should be of interest to a worlwide audience of students, researchers and practitioners in this vital subject area.
This book will now be a core text for students' academic study of the events industry
This book provides a valuable resource for students studying festivals and events, as this is a major policy area at all levels. The case studies and examples used throughout makes a significant contribution to tourism studies and in particular the festival and event sector
An essential reading for all undergraduate and postgraduate students. Highly recommended.
Excellent book for both event studies students and academics. It provides a comprehensive insight into a wide range of event management issues.
At present the planned HND in Event and Hospitality Management is not running but when it does on we anticipate adopting this book.
Some key factors relevant in the Event Management industry are detailed well within this text.
Many modern day mega events are used as key reference and would therefore be a useful read for potential students studying modules within this industry.
This book is a very good book.
Very useful to students.
This is an excellent text for any researcher or student and makes a major contribution to anyone's library.
Many of my students have a real interest in Event Management so this well written text book will be a very useful resource for them.
This book is a good introduction to the conceptual thinking on event phenomenon. The examples of the recent research are presented throughout the book.
Comprehensive and has many overlaps with arts management, so useful in this sense. Eg there are practical issues that we do not cover on the course and this book includes these.
I found this text to be exactly what we were looking for to give our students a good understanding of the contemporary issues that affect the Events industry. I have recommended this as essential reading. It is well written and the format makes it an easy read raising key issues and challenging theory.
A beautiful written and practical introduction to the ever-growing lexicon of the event industry.
