The course introduces the student to events and its various designs. Event as a concept carry different meanings for different businesses, different visitor groups and different stakeholders. Events have global implications i. e. as they are often a reason to travel and thus become central to the tourism industry. Events are often a financial challenge which is dealt with in the course. The importance of events for tourism and other tourism companies is studied in perspective by strategic, tactical and operational considerations.


In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
