"This is essential reading for students on event management courses. It is welcome in an industry which is sadly lacking in researched practical support textbooks. The event industry is a dynamic, complex, multi-faceted and layered environment to work within and good project management is essential to successful, safe and sustainable events. This book is a must for anyone considering a career in event management." - Beverley Griffiths, Director of Event and public Safety at The Emergency Planning College.
