No matter the scale, a mismanaged event can put staff, local government, event patrons and the general public at risk. To assist community, sporting event organisers and local government event officers in the Mid West region plan and deliver successful, well managed events, a one day workshop will be held on the 29th November 2019. Based on the Parks and Leisure WA Event Application Guide this training will focus on:
- The Event Context and Planning Process - stakeholder group; simple definitions; good planning: project management, responsibilities, business planning
- Identifying Knowledge & Skills Required by Event Organisers - motivation and benefits; roles and impacts of events; who is producing events, and why?; understanding the lingo; financial planning - making it add up
- Staging & Event Production - local government support in helping to develop events for community; the perfect stage - facilities available for use; who to talk to and about what?; a safe and well-managed event - duty of care; logistics
- The Marketing Process- how to engage and satisfy community needs; understanding the consumer; stakeholders; events as 'service experiences'.
