The diversity of employers includes event or exhibition management companies, event venues, or organisations their own events. Work could be undertaken in an office environment where the planning of events takes place, on-site at venues where events are staged or a combination of both.
Possible roles include event or exhibition planner and coordinator positions in the areas of conferencing, event sales, functions, in-house meetings, staging and venues.
