  • Event planning and environmental scanning
  • Marketing approaches
  • Stakeholder engagement and involvement

The marking criteria also requires your group to include information from your own reading, the module content and industry speakers on the module and what have you learned so far. Please make sure that you critically evaluate a range of secondary sources, appraise these models and approaches to provide a detailed rationale and analysis of all aspects of the planning and operational implementation of the event.

A formal, professionally presented report is required which includes font size Arial 12, a clear structure with appendices and all references should be Harvard style. An extensive reference list should be included to demonstrate your depth of knowledge and understanding of the topic.

Please also use the draft Turnitin area and check that you have a low Turnitin score and therefore it is original work and correctly referenced.
