Event management is a skill that can be transferred across industries and is recognised globally. Good event managers and organizers develop a reputation based on successful work because many of the skills that go into delivering a good event are intangible: being organised, keeping calm, effectively managing people.
Event management career options:
- Event planner / manager / coordinator
- Weddings, parties, balls, tourism, fashion, sport, corporate events, festivals and special events, international conventions
- Facilities manager
- Site or project manager
- Government agencies
- Fundraising events
While being good at event management comes from experience, learning the basics for the industries where events are most prominent is best learned through study. Learning from professionals who have been there before will provide invaluable insight and useful tips to help you hit the ground running in your new career.
