"Special Event Production: The Process is an excellent book describing the complicated process of event production. It's a must have for anyone who wants to learn about this industry. Many people think it's easy to produce events. This book will teach them how complex it is and how much a producer needs to know. This book covers all the key aspects and presents them clearly, in order of timeline of a production, and even has appendixes with contracts, time sheets, budgets and other examples. I'm a producer myself and teach Event Design to graduate students. They love this book and one of their most often repeated comments is: "I never know producing an event was so involved." This book helps them understand and navigate the many steps for the production itself, as well as the broad knowledge of the many factors a producer has to have." - Corinna Sager, Lifestyle International Productions LLC
"Matthew's two books, "Special Event Production," are a must-have for anyone in the field, whether a newcomer or an old hand. The author has organized this complicated subject well. Lavishly illustrated, laid-out with side-bars, diagrams, and examples, the reader will find everything they need in the two volumes. In fact, I found the books welcoming and accessible with plenty of white space, and the detailed table of contents and good index make looking up a topic easy. These two volumes should become the gold standard in special event production. Highly readable and highly recommended." - Julie Ferguson, Professional Speaker and Event Organizer
