Job Profile: Event Planner/Coordinator

Event planners must be organized and decisive but also have a creative flair.

Payscale.com, Bureau of Labor Statistics and AdminSecret

Job Description

The work of meeting and convention planners may be considered either stressful or energizing, but there is no question that it is fast-paced and demanding. Planners oversee multiple operations at one time, face numerous deadlines, and orchestrate the activities of several different groups of people.

  • -Event planners design, organize and coordinate conferences, conventions, meetings, seminars, exhibitions, trade shows, festivals and other events.
  • -They are responsible for participants’ accommodations and transportation, facilities, catering, signage, displays, translation, audio-visual equipment, printing and security.
  • -They also establish and monitor budgets to support these ventures.

Skills

  • -Event planners should be well organized and skilled in coordinating event logistics.
  • -They must have excellent presentation skills as they have to clearly communicate information effectively and persuasively.
  • -Knowledge of media relations and marketing is important when promoting events.

Education and training

Event planners typically possess bachelor’s degrees in business administration, marketing, tourism or hospitality administration. For more information on schools, go here.

Many employers prefer applicants who have a bachelor’s degree, but this is not always required. The proportion of planners with a bachelor’s degree is increasing because the work and responsibilities are becoming more complex.

Planners have backgrounds in a variety of disciplines, but some useful undergraduate majors are marketing, public relations, communications, business, and hotel or hospitality management. Individuals who have studied hospitality management may start out with greater responsibilities than those with other academic backgrounds.
