Events Project Management: A Checklist Approach

Events management is big business these days. Markcheck Publishing has developed a Checklist Approach to assist those who plan and manage special events.

Events Project Management was first published in 1992. It started as a project that evolved over 3 years as a result of recognizing the need for a systematic approach to planning and implementing special events. It is a tool that can assist organizations and individuals to identify, and deal with the necessary issues and details, to hold a successful event.

The need for this book became evident after the author's personal experiences with organizations who encountered difficulties in planning and executing their events. Good intentions, without a focus or process, leads to confusion and chaos.

Testimonial Quote Events Project Management Handbook of Checklists was written to help individuals and organizations better plan, organize and execute their various events. It is a practical reference tool that is continuously evolving.

The second edition was published in February, 1997 and contains many improvements that are a result of receiving customer feedback. Close to 200 hours have gone into updating the book. There are 97 sections covering event types/ideas, planning decisions, logistical issues, protocol, volunteers, sponsorship, revenue sources, facilities, services, program, ceremonies, marketing, prizes, and registration, to name a few. The book's 434 pages are packaged in a customized 3 ring binder that includes a diskette so that organizations can customize and update the checklists to meet their needs.

Since 1990, Mark Hiltz has spent more than 500 hours researching, accumulating, collecting, reviewing, organizing, developing and formulating events information into the checklists. He has used his many years of experience in planning events to capture this information and generate the checklists.
