This subject provides an overview of the event management process in a variety of contexts. Specifically, students will learn to plan, organise, implement and evaluate events while managing time, budget and relevant risk factors. Students will also explore the relevance of project management, human resource management (including volunteers), meeting procedures, report writing, submission preparation, legal considerations, and team cohesion to the creation of successful events. Throughout the semester, students work on a live event and meet weekly to discuss issues and progress with the instructor and team members.

- Explain the various types of impacts and legacies events can generate, and how these relate to sustainability.
- Articulate the details of your event management project in a clear, concise writing style tailored to a professional audience.
- Demonstrate the ability to work effectively with others to design, plan, stage and evaluate an event.
Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.
