The growth of special events industry has grown for the past decade. This fact is from a research which is recently conducted. Why Do People Hire Event Planners? People tend to hire a party planner because they lack confident I their selves when it comes to planning an event, for they think that they don’t have enough knowledge like party planners do. Thus, party planner can help these people to make their event successful.
Who Becomes An Event Planner? Planners are often people who got their start in one particular aspect of special events. For instance, some entrepreneur would start a catering services before they would start to plan an event. Many other planners have similar stories. This is the reason why party planners do not only organize events, but they also provide other services.
Event planners may also have started out planning events for other companies before deciding to go into business for themselves. However, it is also considerable to take a degree on event planning in a University before doing the job. However, there are other groups such as the Meeting Professionals International or commonly known as MPI who offers educational opportunities about event planning and management.
There are also other things that are considerable, for instance, working to become a Certified Special Events Professional or CSEP, or maybe, working as a Certified Meeting Planner or CMP. These designations are given out by ISES and MPI, respectively. Most corporations would consider the designations given by the ISES and MPI before they would hire the planner. After the long run in studying to become a CSEP or CMP, these people are already considered as professionals.
The corporate and social are the two markets for event planning services. The term “corporate” includes not only companies but also charities and nonprofit organizations. In order to get more support and funds to the public, charities host fundraising and receptions. Large events requires expertise and specialized planning experience, however, you have to start with small local events.
However social events are those of reunions, birthday parties, debut, sweet sixteen and wedding. You may decide to handle all these events or just specialize in one or more of them.
As a general rule, social events involve more weekends and holidays than corporate events do. However, events have “on” and “off” season depending on the type of event and depending on the country. However, no matter what your specialization (with the exception of parties for young children), you can count on working at least some evenings as you coordinate and supervise events. However, most of the time, those events occur during business hours.
