A day in the life of an events manager

Ever wonder what it like to be aneventmanager? Being aneventmanager is a fabulous role and it can see you working in some amazing places with awesome people but be warned success takes hard work and dedication, but the rewards are endless. So what does an event manager do all day every day? Well most of our days are spent in the office where we plan and prepare for our upcoming events. Time is filled with liaising with clients, suppliers, confirming and contracting venues/hotels, reviewing and selecting menus, creating event documents such as rooming lists, transfer and flight manifests and event briefs, designing menus, seating charts and lots of cross-checking. It is very important that our work is accurate so we crosscheck, crosscheck again and again just to be sure! In addition to our upcoming events we get to work as a team on new client proposals which is a great forum to be creative and work together to design event concepts and themes. What happens when we are onsite with a job you say? Lots of running around! Our days onsite with events are filled with lots of activities such as checking venue set-ups, ensuring the clients needs and expectations are met and that everything is running seamlessly.
