New resources on Event Planning in Cities – Subject Spotlight

I’ve collated a few examples of some of the research published recently on event planning in cities. I wanted to highlight some examples of new books we’ve bought on this subject, how to find relevant chapters in more general books and new research that has been published in journal articles.

Event planning in cities is quite a targeted subject and there are not as many books published specifically about it as other subjects – however there are a lot of books about event planning / event management generally, and many of those have chapters which focus on events in cities.

Remember – these are just some examples – you’ll find more when you use Library Search.
