Why Work in the Event Industry?

Updated: May 26, 2023

We think there is nothing more rewarding than working in the event industry! Creating an exciting event programme, seeing attendees enjoying themselves, the camaraderie of working with suppliers and venues, facilitating connections and shared experiences. Knowing that you played a part in making an event happen makes all the challenges and hard work worth it. It's a career full of variety with rarely two days the same! And with so many fields to work in, the career opportunities offer something for everyone. Event management graduates can be found working in event production, operations, planning, event decor and design, style shoots, media, sales, PR and marketing, event processes and systems, event tech and project management. Career choices also include working with live events, online events and hybrid events. And the wide range of event types mean even more variety in your career path - conferences, exhibitions and trade shows, product launches, sporting events, gala dinners, charity events and fundraisers, parades, festivals and cultural events, corporate events, community events, weddings, parties and social events and more!

We asked our students, graduates and teaching team to describe what the love about working in events in just a few words:

No Two Days the Same
Love the Variety
Challenging but Rewarding
I Love the Travel
Working with Great Teams
Using My Creativity
Trouble Shooting is a Buzz
So Satisfying When It's Over and You See What You've Done
I'm an Adrenaline Junkie - So I Love It
Never a Dull Moment
Building an Event from Nothing
Love the People
The Glamour Side is Fun
The Networking is Phenomenal
Love Being on the Global Major Events Circuit
Organising and Planning is My Thing so Now I Get to Do It for a Living!
