Editorial objectives

Launched in 2010, this double-blind peer-reviewed journal seeks to advance knowledge in the field of events and to enhance the uptakeof such knowledge by practitioners in the field. Whilst the journal publishes 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 the broadest sense, ranging from small festivals to mega events such as the Olympics and will 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 the journal is therefore adopting a multi-disciplinary approach.

  • Event Marketing

  • Event Planning and Design

  • Event Logistics

  • Event Evaluation
