Event Management1“The best laid plans of mice and men aft go awry” Burns, R (1785): To a mouseThis quote refers to the saying that no matter how carefully a project is developed; there is apossibility that something can still go wrong with it. This quote is taken from the literature of“To a mouse” written by Robert Burns. With context to the industry of event management, itshall be noted that this quote adequately applies to the functions performed by the organization.A company being event organizers bears risk and threats in their course of action whileperforming certain events due to which their activities symbolize to this task. The companies’works in fluctuating business conditions under which there are high uncertainty and risks. Evenafter managing every plan effectively something go wrong. This act does not show theincompetence of the companies to initiate successfully but it is the feature of the eventmanagement industry only that even after actively managing everything, still there is a scope ofproblems to which the organizations shall become competent to resolve efficiently (Conway2014).The below mentioned essay states the failures and risks which an event management canface in the business function and measures sought to compensate the risk and losses.Furtherdetails about the task are discussed below:Further talking about the issues faced by an event management company it shall be noted thatthere are many issues which the organization faces even after taking so many precautions andmeasuring each step. Thus it is recommended to take every step wisely to initiate success of theevent.

Aggressive market strategy misbalances the whole functioning of the organization.Taking the examples of two firms which are most prominent is a city. Both companies initiatetheir business functions on large scale and hold similar business activities (Case 2013). So, onechange implemented by an organization also affects the working of other organization as well. Ifone of the organization initiates a change, then the other organization is obliged to have suchchange otherwise they lose their competence in the target market. Thus, many times organizationdevelops such changes which are beyond expertise which causes problem for them (Masterman2014).As the quote states that in the business many situations come when the organization facesuncertainty and fluctuating external environment.
