What Is Event Management?

Event management, also known as event planning, is project management applied to creating events, conferences and festivals.

Event management involves knowing the key brand and target audience, devising the event concept, planning the logistics and coordinating the technical aspects of the event. It also includes managing the event on the day and post-event analysis.

The event management industry includes events of all sizes from the Olympics down to a breakfast meeting for ten business people.

Event Management as a Marketing Tool

Corporate event management is one of the marketing and communication tools used by companies. Corporate events can include product launches, press conferences, cocktail parties, dinners, conferences and exhibitions. The publicity created by events can be leveraged with media coverage.

Event Management Companies

Event planners and event management companies service corporate clients with marketing programs like road shows and grand openings, concerts, award ceremonies, film premieres, release parties, fashion shows, commercial events, weddings and bar mitzvahs. Event management companies traditionally have a lot of scope for the creative, technical and logistical elements of the event.
