Events Management is a rapidly expanding discipline with growing student numbers however currently there are no specifically focused Research Methods texts available to serve this growing cohort. Fulfilling the need for a relevant book which reflects the unique characteristics of research in the field this title provides students with innovative ideas and inspiration to undertake their own research work and informs them of the wide diversity of research strategies and contexts that are available.

Content is written from a researcher's point of view and provides a step by step guide to accomplishing a project or dissertation in the field of events. The reader is guided right from the beginning in selecting a topic for research, identifying aims, objectives and questions and then determining which research methods are the most appropriate and practical.
