"Great textbook for a student going into event and entertainment production. The book gives the big picture to ensure that all aspects are part of planning. I would recommend it for any student planning a career in event or venue management so they can understand all the components of the event, whether they produce the technical aspects or not"- Denise DiRienzo,Communication Studies Professor, State University of New York at Oswego
