Event Management by Laricia Smit

Event Management Handbook

Putting theory into practice:

A South African approach, 4th edition

The focus of the book is to assist learners in placing event management and administration theory into practice – how to actually DO something, rather than just knowing how to do it.

An Event Management Handbook specifically developed to meet both the needs of learners and practitioners in the South African event and entertainment industry.


The handbook aims to:

  • provide learners with the tools and templates needed in the industry
  • provide illustrative examples where possible
  • provide learners with comprehensive know-how about organising events, from the initial concept event to evaluation and divestment

The book provides learners with actual tools – templates and checklists that they will need as effective event managers.
