Event management and sustainability.

Book cover for Event management and sustainability.


This book discusses concepts of sustainable management and how it relates to various sectors within the events industry. It illustrates the fundamental importance of local communities, businesses and interested stakeholders in relation to future events in regional, national and international locations. Historical and documented reports supplement this area. The book focuses on international governing bodies and national government strategic objectives as the cornerstone for sustainable development in the events sector. The relationship between these strategic objectives and on-the-ground operational responsibilities is presented using research by contributing authors and accredited organizations to add scope and depth to the publication. The book consists of 24 chapters presented in five parts: concepts of sustainability within the events sector, economic, social and environmental impacts of events, management models and feasibility of sustainable events, and case studies of sustainable events. The book is intended to support practitioners in their operational and administrative duties and to educate undergraduates/postgraduates within their industry sectors throughout the UK and on an international basis.
