Use three topics to write a critical literature review entitled: ‘Critical issues facing the international event sector’. The word count for each part should be 1,100 – 1,200 words. The total word count for the report should be 3300-3600 words.
- Identify three trends that you think are currently influencing the shape of the international event industry. Critically consider the effect that these trends are having on the industry, making reference in your answer to specific cases.
- A review of the literature on event legacy reveals many opinions of what legacy is. Discuss what you consider legacy to be, and, in the context of mega-events, discuss the key lessons that can be learned from past events to ensure a positive legacy. Your answer should draw on the readings attached to this email, although it can also draw on other secondary sources.
- Festivals are fun – but what about the carbon footprint? (Lillington 2019: 1) Discuss why festivals and events are becoming more environmentally responsible, and consider the challenges they face in doing this. Illustrate your answer with reference to examples and guest lectures.
The report should be fully referenced, i.e. secondary sources should be cited throughout the text and a list of references should be provided at the end. There should be a cite after every two or three sentences. Each part should include at least 5 academic citations (other secondary sources may also be used as appropriate). Please use APA style to write the references. The matching score of plagiarism should below 10%.
