  • An ontology of the study of planned events and the professional practice of event management and event tourism;
  • User friendly explanations and language to explain and contextualise jargon and technical terms within this wide and varied field;
  • E version has an interactive function with hyperlinks to sources, books in the EMTM series as well as ability to bookmark pages, instant linkage to cross references and more.

This Dictionary, produced by a distinguished and varied panel of international editors, is an invaluable reference for students, academics, practitioners, researchers, policy makers. For the first time, it compiles and defines a comprehensive glossary of terms used in the event-specific literature. Whilst many of these terms are commonplace, their usage in the events literature is often specific and in need of interpretation.

Whilst there are numerous short entries and basic definitions, the emphasis has been placed on terms with high relevance to planned events, and in particular to theories, concepts and models specific to event studies. Multiple usages, including quotations are provided, where relevant, to cover the breadth of meanings and applications of the terms.

Part of the Event Management Theory and Methods 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. 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.
With online resource material, this mix-and-match collection is ideal for lecturers who need theoretical foundations and case studies for their classes, by students in need of reference works, by professionals wanting increased understanding alongside practical methods, and by agencies or associations that want their members and stakeholders to have access to a library of valuable resources. Series editor: Donald Getz PhD., Professor Emeritus, University of Calgary, Canada.
