Overview

Event planning is one of those careers that are often portrayed as fun and glamorous on television and in movies. While it is often an enjoyable job for those in this profession, and it can be glamorous at times, event planners put in much more work than the average individual tends to think.

An event planner?s job is not just done on the actual day of the event. Brainstorming and initial planning for any event can begin months or even a year (or more) before it is actually held. This involves deciding on a theme for the event, finding a location, and coordinating with various vendors to make it all come together seamlessly.

For a successful event within the marketing and sales industry, it is also essential to have the right people in attendance. If a company is featuring a new product, potential buyers need to be there. If a client is making a big reveal, online influencers should be there to help get the news out to the masses through social media and other websites.

A successful event planner has much more to consider than just the invitations and table decorations. Would you like to learn even more about what life as an event planner is like? Check out the career profiles below for the inside scoop from actual event planners that we have interviewed.
