Mega and large-scale events are becoming more common, with attendance at programs growing on average 22% in the last ten years. Larger events are inherently more complicated, requiring additional security and facility concerns, as well as presenting greater budgetary and marketing pressures. Such considerations are not typically addressed in most event management educational programs but are the specific focus of this master’s program. Courses focus on festivals, trade shows, major conventions, sports events, and concerts.
