Editorial Reviews

Review

A good refresher for experienced professionals and excellent reading for novices on keeping personal and professional boundaries from being crossed. -- Corporate Meetings & Incentives Magazine, 2003

This is a must-read not only for event professionals, but also for small-business people conceiving product introductions and conference appearances. -- Harvard Business School

Wouldn't a professional guide to dealing with tricky questions of ethics&etiquette, come in handy? Luckily, there's "Event Planning Ethics&Etiquette." -- Meeting News, September 2003

Review

"An excellent, timely benchmark for all those who strive to achieve the highest standard in the event planning industry. This invaluable resource will progressively lead event professionals through the fundamental steps in organizing, planning, and succeeding in event management. A must read!"

"The importance of developing long-term relationships between planners and suppliers is driven home in this outstanding book on ethics and business etiquette in the events industry. The reader is taken through scenarios that point out areas of ethical lapses that are often just considered as 'the cost of doing business.' Advice is given on how to choose relevant gifts that are appropriate, and not construed as a bribe or a kickback. From business meals to familiarization trips, there is practical advice on accepting or refusing perks. This is an extremely timely and much-needed book."

Business relationships based on mutual trust and honest business practices will weather any economic storm and build a successful future for all involved."

"Ethics and etiquette are the ultimate foundation of event planning. This book outlines all of the criteria necessary for each and every event planner to be a success. The relevancy of this information has never been more important in the industry than it is today. My thanks to Judy Allen."

Format: Hardcover
This book offers interesting information, however is really only focused on consultancy, suppliers and America.

As an Australian I found it to be a little removed from what is happening locally, plus, the examples were sometimes weak.

For Americans, this would offer a good basis for Ethics / Etiquette however I would not rec this book to other international practitioners.
