Editorial Objectives

Launching in 2010, the journal seeks to advance knowledge in the field of events and to enhance the uptake of such knowledge by practitioners in the field. Whilst publishing theoretical and practical articles, articles will include a section on how the findings can be adopted by practitioners in the field. The journal will cover events in its broadest sense ranging from small festivals to mega events such as the Olympics and include business events (MICE) as well as special events. As the field of events is not a discipline in its own right, articles will be sourced from all disciplines and it is therefore adopting a multi-disciplinary approach.


The journal will include, but is not limited to:

  • Event Marketing
  • Event Planning and Design
  • Event Logistics
  • Event Evaluation
  • Strategic Management and Creative Leadership
  • Sponsorship and Fundraising
  • Volunteer and Human Resource Management
  • Event Professionalism
  • Event Innovations
  • Event Programming
  • Event Risk Management
  • Financial Management of Events
  • Clients and Concepts
  • Business Relations
  • Conferences
  • Public Relations
  • Festivals
  • Conventions


  • A section that provides the practical perspectives on the articles contained in each issue
  • Comments and/or trends in event education
  • Reviews of event tools and software rather than the more traditional book reviews


  • Researchers in the field of event management or associated fields
  • Educators in event management
  • Practitioners in event management
  • Government agencies involved with staging, promoting or evaluating events
