You are to research event planner tools like the ones in this week’s lecture. Your paper can be on the websites, industry publications or articles that you found and the “tools” that you found very helpful. You can attach samples that will not count toward the page limits. Look at eventsindustry.org and corbinball.com to get you started.
The tools that you write about do not have be the ones discussed in the lecture. The content of the paper should discuss planner’s tools that improve efficiency and collaboration. Be sure to add how you think the tool could be put to good use in the organizing of conferences, trade shows or events. I have included a list of possible tools that you can research but you do not have to use the list or the tools included in the list.
Please look at the sample attached bellow.

Writing citations, reference, bibliography
In-text citations, footnotes and endnotes refer readers to exact page(s) of a source. In-text citation is given within the body of an assignment to any ideas directly quoted or copied, any ideas adapted from an original source and any original diagrams or pictures, or major ideas paraphrased to help explain a concept. Example of in-text citation: (Spence 1990, 207)
The biggest difference between footnotes and endnotes is where the notes are placed. Footnotes appear at the bottom of the page for any notes that apply to each specific page; endnotes appear collectively at the end of a paper, starting on a separate page and labeled as “Endnotes.” The footnote is marked by a superscript number within the body of the text. The superscript number also appears at the bottom of the page, along with the additional explanatory or bibliographic information.
The Bibliography, or Works Cited, page is the last section of a paper. It compiles the full citation information for any source cited in or consulted for the paper into one location and allows your readers to get an overview of the works informing your thinking. The full citation information found in this section tells your readers when and where a source was published, whereas a footnote might only include the title of the work. Additionally, no information besides the citation information is included within the bibliography.
For our assignment papers in TSTD 6278 the following is required: (1) In-text citations for quotes, “nearly” copied text or any ideas adapted from the original source. (2) Bibliography, Works Cited or References appear at the end of the paper. These can follow the content or be on a separate page. You can include footnotes is you prefer to use a footnote in ADDITION to an in-text citation.
