Queensland Department of Tourism, Sport and Racing : A Planning Guide for Event Managers

This guide can help event planners and managers develop and manage ‘defined and structured’ and ‘defined and unstructured’ events as these events provide the greatest potential for improved outcomes. ‘Undefined and unstructured’ events are more difficult to manage and modify and require significant consultation between government departments, local councils, licensees, and community and business groups. When planning any type of event there are many aspects to be considered along with the operational details. A financial management plan, sponsorship plan, marketing plan, research study and event evaluation may all be required to ensure that events are a success.
