Overview

Learn to master experiential marketing through event experiences and create a memorable impact on customers. This course will help you develop the expertise to operate at a strategic level in marketing roles in the events industry and enable you to make your business really stand out.

You will gain an in-depth understanding of current key political, social, cultural, environmental and economic issues that shape the marketing of events across the globe. Through the study of global brand management, you will analyse the identity of brands and their position within an international market. You will look at what experiential marketing means to people and how events can be created to evoke positive emotions. You will discover how relationship marketing helps harmonise brand positioning and learn how personality is used to bring brands to life during immersive experiences and activation events.

Studying alongside peers and industry professionals, you will examine consumer behaviour – how consumers behave and why they behave the way they do – and you will develop the tools, techniques and strategies to influence these behaviours to generate and retain loyal target audiences going forwards.

A range of research modules will equip you will the knowledge, skills and tools you will need to evaluate valid and reliable methods for data collection and analysis, and you will learn to critique advances in theories, strategies and methodologies for an extended piece of research.

By drawing on a range of strategic marketing techniques and stakeholder management knowledge and skills, you will be able to deliver safe, successful and memorable events in local, national and international settings.

You will join a community of postgraduate events students, alumni and industry experts with whom you will be able to share experiences, ideas and best practice.

In addition, you will become part of The UK Centre for Events Management, which has been educating events professionals for more than 21 years. Our specialist team draws together academics and events professionals who have designed and developed dynamic courses that are informed by industry and research. Our staff are also engaged in research and consultancy work and publish their findings in textbooks and journals of international standing.

There will be opportunities open to you to attend field trips, conferences and guest lectures to enhance your knowledge and learning.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

Professor
Emma Wood is Professor in Events Experience and Marketing. She is Research Lead for the UK Centre for Event Management. She has published widely in the areas of event impact, event experience and event marketing including a recently co-edited book, The Event and Festival Experience. Emma is an editor of the Journal of Policy Research in Tourism, Leisure and Events and also chairs the Academy of Marketing special interest group in Events and Experiential Marketing.
Events of all types have the intensity, and quite often the intention, to bring about personal transformation. That power comes from their out-of-the-ordinary nature – they create a liminal experience distinct from everyday life. Well-designed events encourage interaction and engagement resulting in emotionally charged memories that continue to be shared long after the event is over.

Fees & funding

Fees information is not available for this selection of attendance, location and start date. Please re-select.

Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 2020/21 on this course is £777.80 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £38.89. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
