So what is the difference between event management and event production? Event management is the overarching project management role. These roles will encompass all areas of the event including but not limited to working with the event production team, staffing the event, registration execution and H&S etc.
Event production covers all areas of the technical and creative execution to an event. Event production will be used to create the mood, atmosphere and the creative concept for guests. An event producer will work with clients to identify the concept or theme of the event, and subsequently plan the logistics and technical components, including audiovisuals, vendors, crew, equipment, budgets, and more.
