About a Career as an Event Planner
Imagine having an exciting high-paying career that lets you use your creativity to organize important events. Welcome to the world of event planning!
An event planner is a professional who organizes events. When you think of an “event” you may think of something fabulous, such as the Academy Awards, Mardi Gras, Super Bowl, Presidential Inauguration or New Year’s festivities in Times Square.
Event planners are needed for all these events. However, event planners also work on thousands of smaller events ranging from charity fundraisers to film festivals to fashion shows, as well as corporate events of all kinds.
Any time people gather together for a purpose, someone is needed to oversee all the details to ensure the event happens and that it is a success. That someone — with a career that is fun, interesting, and rewarding — could be you!
