Jonathan M. Tisch Center of Hospitality

Facilities and Venue Management

From sports arenas to concert halls, amphitheaters, convention centers, and stadiums, venues vary greatly in purpose, in size, and in the challenges they face when hosting successful events. This class will review the events industry from the perspective of one of its key suppliers: public assembly venues. Topics covered include the history of public venues as well as business management and finance, ticketing, safety and security, and booking. Examples of invoices, rental agreements, and financial statements illustrate the financial realities of operating event venues.
