4.0 out of 5 stars Good resource. 26 Jun 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a good resource if you want to get into Event Planning, or have found yourself in an Event Planning job, and want to learn about the core process, and get some tips for managing the process and increasing your professionalism. There aren't many event coordinating books out there that aren't totally outdated, but this is a good one. If you're looking at it, you should probably get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professional Event Coordination 3 Jan 2013
By Carole Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Professional Event Coordination was far more comprehensive than I could have omagined. It gets to the nitty gritty of every aspect of an event, even those one wouldn't think about. Probably the only event planning book one would need!
