Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The term event or events industry is used by a number of people in a number of different ways, with continued discussion about the development of the events industry, however, there is only limited data to support this. If the events industry is to be fully explored, researched and understood, alongside education, training and skills
development, further work is required. It is within this context that AEME (Association for Events Management Education) has been commissioned by People1st to undertake the current research. This project involved the collection, collation, synthesis and review of literature, predominantly through desk research. Its purpose was to identify and evaluate key research already undertaken relating specifically to the definition, size and scope of the events industry, skills and skills development. The literature review also identified gaps in the current research base
in order to make recommendations for future research requirements.
