Unit in brief
Learners plan, design and implement a promotional campaign for a selected event and evaluate its success.
The success and outcomes of events rely heavily on the creativity and innovation of marketing materials and promotional methods to capture the trends, needs and excitement of audiences through the combination of traditional and digital methods. Organisations that implement a cohesive, engaging and innovative marketing campaign are more likely to achieve their goals, increase attendance and demonstrate sustainability.
In this unit, you will investigate how different types of marketing are used for events. Using your findings, you will creatively develop and implement a marketing campaign and materials for a selected event. You will then develop the skills to evaluate the success of the event marketing campaign, making suggestions on how this could be improved. To complete the assessment task, you will need to draw on your learning from across your programme.
