Learning outcomes to be examined in this assessment At the end of a module the learner will be expected to be able to:
- Explain how special events are defined and classified
- Explain the scope and impact of marketing and events within an organisation
- Describe the marketing mix and explain its role in a marketing strategy
- Apply basic event and marketing concepts (e.g., planning, coordinating, staffing, marketing, segmentation, targeting and positioning (STP), risk management, evaluation, etc)
An individual report which must be presented in a report format (1500 words). It is important that your report is properly structured as shown below. Remember that this individual report accounts for 100% of your module assessment.
Your report should include references to the appropriate international event and marketing literature (textbooks, journals and websites). Care should be taken when consulting websites as they are not all equally authoritative (for example Wikipedia is not peer-reviewed; therefore is not considered an academic reference website). A minimum of 5 different academic references must be cited to achieve a pass, but a well-researched report is likely to cite many more.
You are advised to keep a backup copy of the report until you receive your grade and regularly back-up your work in the cloud (OneDrive, iCloud, Dropbox and GoogleDrive are good examples). A disk crash is not an acceptable reason for late submission.
Below is an indicative structure for your report:
Table of Contents
A list of all the sections, headings, and sub-headings. Appendices and Figures should be provided as well as all page numbers as clearly as possible.
Introduction/Executive Summary (approx. 150 words)
This should show that you have understood the brief and that you will cover everything required.
Findings and Analysis (approx. 1200 words)
This is the substance of your report. The structure will vary depending on the material being presented. Headings and sub-headings should be used to indicate clearly the different sections.
Charts, diagrams and tables can be used to reinforce your arguments, although it may be better to include the more complex ones as an appendix.
See client brief on the next page for more information
Conclusion (approx. 150 words) This provides an end to your report through a summary of the important points in your discussion. Remember not to include any new material here.
Reference List / Bibliography The terms reference list and bibliography are sometimes used interchangeably, but here we define the terms as:
Bibliography - a list of consulted readings, for example a list of textbook sources, that you have studied while composing your essay, but not specifically cited in the text
Reference list - a list of cited sources
