EVT 4100 - Special Event and Wedding Production

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): HTE 2010 or EVT 2010

Description: This course examines the required equipment, professional personnel and licensing required to achieve and produce a special event, with specific emphasis placed on outdoor festivals, weddings, social galas and fundraisers. Using the planning process for a wedding as an example, students determine the appropriate vendors and expert support staff required to resolve specific logistical and/or technical production challenges. Students also delineate the needs of event stakeholders, as represented by the wedding client couple, ancillary family members and vendors, and practice various communication techniques appropriate to working with each group effectively. Students are able to identify necessary audio and visual support requirements for an event, as well as choose appropriate staging and decor design. Safety standards and hazard prevention, along with specific third party regulations and licensing requirements are outlined in detail.
