The life of an event manager is a pretty incredible one. From location scouting to choosing and liaising with suppliers and meeting with clients to plan exciting things, its event managers who get the show on the road - literally.
Event managers are responsible for the planning, organisation and running of entire professional, business or social projects. They manage every aspect of an event, from choosing the florist, caterer and photographer, to working closely with clients to smoothly bring their vision to life.
Creative, engaging, organised and confident, an event manager is a natural problem-solver, who finds it easy to talk to clients and interpret their instructions and wildest dreams. An event manager then brings it all to life, from developing a budget and finding the perfect place to play host to the festivities, to taking deliveries and making sure everything goes ‘right on the night.’
Weddings, product launches, music festivals, fundraisers, parties, exhibitions, and conferences. There’s no end to the types of events you could choose to specialise in. Think big, if you dare. Olympics, anyone? A career in event management is perfect if you thrive on variety; no two days will ever be the same. You could be in the office one day, and out on the road or at an event mingling with guests the next.
