SBLR 5080 - Sport Event Planning

3 credit hours
Formerly - SADL 5080
Competition to bid for events from youth and recreational to international events is becoming more complex. Event managers are asked to integrate a balanced sustainability approach from the initial bid through planning process through the execution of the event and afterward making event planning increasingly complex. This course is intended to provide students with an overview of how to integrate the three aspects of sustainability (i.e., economic, social, environmental) into the bidding and planning steps leading up to a sport event. At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to assess the various needs of an event, evaluate the capacities of potential sites to host various events, develop a strategic plan that engages relative stakeholders to successfully achieve the events sustainable goals, identify revenue streams and expenses to finance
the event, develop sustainable procurement policies and procedures, and ensure the event has a positive and lasting legacy element for the surrounding community, which will ultimately result in bidding and planning documents for an event.

Terms Typically Offered: Winter
