Description

Meeting, convention, and event planners typically do the following: Meet with clients to understand the purpose of the meeting or event Plan the scope of the event, including time, location, and cost Solicit bids from venues and service providers (for example, florists or photographers) Inspect venues to ensure that they meet the client's requirements Coordinate event services such as rooms, transportation, and food service Monitor event activities to ensure the client and event attendees are satisfied Review event bills and approve payment Whether it is a wedding, educational conference, or business convention, meetings and events bring people together for a common purpose. Meeting, convention, and event planners work to ensure that this purpose is achieved efficiently and seamlessly. They coordinate every detail of events, from beginning to end. Before a meeting, for example, planners will meet with clients to estimate attendance and determine the meeting?s purpose. During the meeting, they handle meeting logistics, such as registering guests and organizing audio/visual equipment for speakers. After the meeting, they may survey attendees to find out how the event was received.
