Publisher's Synopsis

The events industry is undergoing fundamental change. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, this has meant the cancellation and postponement of events and a move towards online and hybrid strategies. Looking to the future, the 'new normal' for the events industry will be characterised by a quite different, transformed, events landscape which will require a thorough reimagining and reshaping of existing methods, techniques and practices. 'Reimagining and Reshaping Events: Theoretical and practical perspectives' is a unique and user-friendly text which advances managerial views on how the event industry is transforming. Packed with international real-life case studies and examples, it contextualises theory and illustrates how the industry has had to adapt whilst still considering key technological and sustainability issues. The text examines key priorities such as: * The inclusion of technological advances and the development of online and hybrid strategies; * The design of meaningful experiences considering the environment and sustainability; * Ethical catering choices, environmental and social responsibility; * Adapting to complex event situations and incorporating covid strategies; * Knowledge advancement with current technologies and sustainability practices; * The maintenance of practitioner well-being. Written in a user friendly and engaging style, it provides a blend of theory and practice that adopts a practitioner perspective but draws on theory from a broad range of discipline areas.
