Event planning is the highly involved process of planning, coordinating, arranging, and executing events. This could be for charity fundraisers, weddings, fashion events, music festivals, VIP parties, or a whole range of other things.
The role of a business planner essentially boils down to building relationships with clients, developing a vision, and executing it based on their event needs. Interns can support in this process with tasks including include researching, drafting letters to guests or speakers, tracking progress, managing accounts, or a variety of other tasks depending on the event. You will learn about booking speakers, arranging décor, working with a detailed budget and schedule, managing security, and more. Being international in nature, with guests, speakers, service providers, and even the events themselves occasionally being in international locations, being able to do business across cultures is a highly sought-after skill in this industry.
If making clients dream events a reality while learning essential skills, this internship is for you.
