Events Don’t Just Happen: A Case Study

This Case Study session will look at three major Australian events and how they were pulled together behind the scenes. It will provide insight into how the events have evolved: the challenges encountered navigating multifaceted groups of invested stakeholders; pressure points in managing a growing event; the struggles choreographing a smooth event; how these pro’s overcame catastrophe; the importance of planning and, of course, where do we go next?
