Festivals and Events Management BMA236

Hobart

Note:

Introduction

Festivals and events play a major role in our society, by uniting people and stimulating visitation to tourism destinations. The skills needed to manage successful events are wide-reaching, as they involve: consideration of the broader environment within which special events and festivals are located; marketing and coordination skills; an understanding of the events' relationship with the destination and the broader tourism industry; and consideration of the events' direct and indirect economic, social and cultural impacts. This unit aims to equip students with knowledge about events management, and how events relate to the wider tourism and leisure industries. The unit will include local, national and global dimensions of the events sector, and help students comprehend the scale and impact of events and the organisations that manage them.
