The aim of this thesis is to provide a better understanding of how event marketing is usedas a promotional tool. Our research explores, describes and tries to explain the objectiveswith event marketing, how specific events are selected, how the event effectiveness isevaluated, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of using event marketing. We haveconducted a multiple-case study on four companies. Our findings showed that the mainobjectives stated with event marketing are related to affecting the image and achievingawareness. Regarding the selection of specific events, companies take several criteria intoconsideration and the more experience they have of event marketing, the more criteria areconsidered. The evaluation of event effectiveness is perceived as difficult and mainlyconducted through marketing research. Finally, the main advantage with event marketing isthat it penetrates the media noise, while the difficulty of evaluation is perceived as adisadvantage.
