Veteran authors Robin Ammon, Richard Southall, and Mark Nagel provide a framework for the successful operation of sport and event venues through proven strategies and techniques, as highlighted through salient industry examples.
Chapters in this edition explore the complex rules and relationships of public and private financing and ownership, the management of facility revenues and expenses, pricing strategies at the box office, approaches to booking and scheduling, best practices in leveraging human resources, as well as an understanding of and adherence to laws and regulations governing and affecting facilities, employees, and the public through venue contracts, risks, liability, negligence, crowd and alcohol management, as well as emergency planning.
Sport Facility Management: Organizing Events and Mitigating Risks, 4th Edition, builds understanding of this important segment of the global sport industry to prepare undergraduate and graduate students for the challenges, the risks, and the rewards inherent in operating sport and event facilities.
