This paper presents a case study on the organization of an international event. The researchers used the indicators in the international event management system model of Ferdinand & Kitchin (2012) to reflect on the organization of the event:  globalization, global forces affecting the event, local forces affecting the event and stakeholders, resource availability and competition. The researchers concluded that an international event can be successful and sustained through planning, creating committees, conducting regular meetings, using a Gantt chart, intensifying promotions and factoring in logistical considerations. Furthermore, the support from the government and foreign embassies are also needed to strengthen the foundations of the event. Keywords: International Event Management, Events Best Practices
