Review:

Overall, this is an easy-to-read book that provides a rich set of both theoretical background and industry evidence of the ways to design, run, fund, evaluate and study cities and their events.
--Mariana Sigala in TOURISMOS

"All topics are analysed using a number of examples, both from European cities and from other parts of the world. This volume intends to provide guidance for those involved in designing, running, funding, evaluating and studying cities and their events, for those who are interested in the board process both of cultural management and urban revitalisation, as these relate to events in cities."

Culturelink Network

"Overall, this is an easy-to-read book that provides a rich set of both theoretical background and industry evidence of the ways to design, run, fund, evaluate and study cities and their events. The book nicely integrates theoretical concepts with practical evidence gathered through a wide spectrum of international cities of different sizes and geographical locations. The book constitutes a useful reading for researchers-academics, undergraduate or graduate students and all practitioners and policy-makers involved in event management, cultural management, arts administration, urban studies, cultural studies and tourism."
