I am an advertising student who has read more than my fair share of marketing books and briefs. I like this book because it is clearly written in a way that is easy to understand and does not try to go over the reader's head. The author, Allison Saget, recognizes that people are reading the book to learn and not because they already know everything about the world of marketing. She uses her own personal success stories paired with different topics to illustrate the event planning process start to finish in clear detail. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the world of marketing or event planning.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Even though I've worked in hospitality and entertainment industry for the last 14 years, and am the manager of a team of eight, I found The Event Marketing Handbook to be right on the money. When reading it, I felt as though the author Allison Saget was talking directly to me and truly understands the components of event marketing. The templates are also a great resource as well. Besides being an easy and fast read, it gives a perspective that's long overdue in the industry that it's all about shortening the sales cycle. It's on our list as a department must-read and I encourage anyone in any marketing discipline whether pr, advertising, online, communications etc. to own this book.Was this review helpful?

Event marketing is more than throwing a great party. Like any marketing endeavor, its ultimate goal is to generate sales. Author Allison Saget keeps her eye on the prize as she teaches you how to plan and execute your next event. She emphasizes that event marketing must be an integral part of your company¿s total marketing strategy. She covers every aspect of event marketing, including choosing an event, working with sales, crafting a message, generating leads, measuring results and rising above the competition. The book is filled with practical templates and forms she developed during her 20 years in the business. Saget¿s attention to detail gets a bit tedious for example, she meticulously describes the best way to pack a suitcase, but that is easy to forgive because so much of the information is valuable. We encourage you to read this thorough handbook before you rent that tent.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
