Convention & Meeting Planning

Convention and meeting planners assist in organizing events that bring people together for the purpose of a meeting (whether small, large, or a convention) that showcases an entire industry. Events can be as specific as party planning for a wedding, cocktail party, dinner party or other similar occasions, to huge events such as trade shows and association meetings. The convention or meeting planner is often not only the liaison to the client but also to prop and equipment vendors, food service personnel, among others. It can often be a very stressful but rewarding career for the right person.
