Definition

Event management is considered to be a strategic marketing and communication tool by companies of all sizes. From product launches to press conferences, organisations create promotional events to help them communicate with clients and potential clients.

An event can be purely about information giving, or it can be engaging and interactive. Events give a unique opportunity for attendees to get involved in activities and discussions, and through involvement people are able to understand and retain the message better than any other method of communications.

Organisations might target their audience by using the news media, hoping to generate media coverage, which will reach thousands or millions of people. They can also invite their audience to their events and reach them at the actual event.
