Part A: Event Proposal Instructions
Choose one of the local councils used in the first assessment task (Waverley Council Event policy). Having the location and the policy in mind, you will develop an original major event proposal to fit within the strategic requirements of the local council and the variety of stakeholders involved. You need to clearly identify the stakeholders for this purpose.
Note: a major event is an event that has important consequences, such as a conference or exhibition, a major product launch or a government VIP event. This includes public events, such as festivals and concerts, with over 10,000 people.

- Be designed with the local community in mind
- Needs to be either be “supported” or “approved” by local authorities

- Identify the key stakeholders
- Describe the target demographic for the event and how they will be reached
- Explain why the target demographic would enjoy/participate in the event
