An events manager is an organizational master who makes sure events of all shapes and sizes go off without a hitch. Tasked with everything from preparing decorations, hiring entertainment, organizing schedules, and actually running the event, an event planner coordinates all the small details that come together to make an amazing affair, be it a conference, convention, exhibition, fundraiser, party, or wedding.

Whether working for a company or a client, in a team or individually, events managers have a busy schedule. They meet with prospective clients, make presentations and pitches, and establish budgets even before the real event planning begins. When planning does commence, an events manager works directly with clients throughout the process to ensure their vision is met, keeping in mind accessibility, deadline, permits, budget restrictions, and other factors.
