Permitting for Events

The aim of this class is to provide students with an overview of the types of permits and licenses that are necessary for hosting indoor and outdoor events, and the processes commonly used to obtain them. Students will learn how to comply with appropriate legislation and regulations, and will examine event scenarios where permitting is of importance. Different aspects of compliance management will be reviewed, including: public assembly; sale and serving of alcohol and foods; fireworks, entertainment and special effects; street closures and traffic restrictions; music licensing; fundraising permits.
