SBLR 5180 - Sport Facilities and Event Management

3 credit hours
Formerly - SADL 5180
The tangible aspects of the sport event experience involve many behind the scene coordination and management. Facility operators and event managers are required to execute their job tasks flawlessly to enhance the spectators’ overall experience. This course is intended to address the standalone and supporting aspects of facility operations and event management while balancing the desire to deliver a sustainable event. At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to evaluate facilities in terms of environmental sustainability, accessibility, and properly manage the ingress and regress of crowds. Further students will utilize practical event management strategies to formulate effective communication processes; supervise personnel and/or volunteers; establish logistical plans, site or equipment layouts, develop and adapt event scripts and timelines, create electronic communications and information systems; develop procedures for hospitality, housing, registration, transportation and financial disbursement, security, traffic flow and parking, restroom and waste management; and establish evaluations metrics consistent with facility operations and event management protocols and recognized standards (e.g., LEED, ISO, Council for Responsible Sport).
