I am an event manager & I love my job! I truly couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Event management has me responsible for various types of projects in their entirety from conception through to post event tasks.

Glamour – yes event management does have glamorous elements but let’s be real, like all careers it has its no so spectacular tasks too. For me I absolute love seeing all our creative design, event planning, trouble shooting and organisation transform into experiences. When onsite with an event I always take the time to step back and really appreciate the moment, I find myself thinking “we built this – amazing”, this to me is the glamour.

So what does an event manager actually do, well I like to think of myself as an “event concierge”; here is a little glimpse into event life.

  • Client liaison & meetings
  • Delegate liaison and communication
  • Event concepts & proposals
  • Budget creation & management
  • Establish timelines with all deliverables & key milestones
  • Research suitable venues & suppliers
  • Negotiate pricing, terms & conditions with suppliers & contractors
  • Book venues, entertainment, equipment & suppliers as required
  • Book and manage travel logistics i.e. flights, accommodation, transfers
  • Hire and supervise contractors i.e. event staff, caterers and security
  • Event strategies, marketing & public relations
  • Event planning and event management
  • Onsite event management
  • Ensure health, safety and insurance regulations are followed
