The course covers the entire event process, in which project governance and event management are central. Initially, the emergence of the event phenomenon is discussed from a general societal perspective. The course continues with a study of the various stages of event management, such as idea generation, production and evaluation. Furthermore, the elements of the phases are studied, such as leadership, people and financing. Thereafter, the role and tasks of project management are discussed for different types of events. Based on reviewed analysis tools and planning methods, a sustainable event plan is drawn up. The event plan is presented and discussed, emphasising a sustainable corporate and social perspective. Critical points in the event plan with related possible problem solving proposals are highlighted. Finally, the importance and role of project management in event management will be analysed and discussed based on a sustainable perspective.
