Event Portfolio Management' explores the phenomenon of the event portfolio as a policy tool for cities and destinations. Divided into two parts – ‘Theory’ and ‘Practice’ – the book critically analyses and summarises key underpinnings behind portfolio theory development and identifies key trends and issues in the event portfolio approach. It examines the processes of event portfolio development and management, leveraging, stakeholder networking and collaboration, portfolio design, risk assessment and evaluation. With a wide geographical reach, the book introduces the results of empirical research from different international case studies, including Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin in New Zealand, Canberra and Melbourne in Australia, and Manchester and Edinburgh in the UK.

Part of The Management Theory and Methods for Event Management and Event Tourism Series. This series examines the extent to which mainstream theory is being employed to develop event-specific theory, and to influence the very core practices of event management and event tourism. It provides students and practitioners with the theory and methods to improve event management and event tourism. Each compact volume contains overviews of mainstream management theories and methods, examples from the events literature, case studies, and guidance on all aspects of planned-event management. They introduce the theory, show how it is being used in the events sector through a literature review, incorporate examples and case studies written by researchers and/or practitioners, and contain methods that can be used effectively in the real world.


This is an indispensable specialist text for events students, scholars and practitioners. With additional online resource material, the book is ideal for lecturers who teach event tourism and need theoretical foundations and case studies for their classes. It is a valuable source of reference for students undertaking events and tourism programmes. For destination managers and other industry professionals, the book provides a theoretical and practical guide to developing successful and sustainable portfolios of events.
