What does an Event Coordinator do?

Event coordinators work in various settings including social and corporate and aid organizations in planning and executing successful events. Event coordinators will adhere to a client’s financial needs, search for rental space accommodations, and bear client requests in mind. They are hired to develop, coordinate, plan, and complete functions for or on behalf of a business organization; they oversee, plan, coordinate, and advise on day-to-day operations of events which could be social or educational.

Event coordinators meet with decision-makers to outline the purpose and needs of an event and map out everything needed for kick-off. They scout venues and perform cost-benefit comparisons to help select the best venue and negotiate with vendors. During an event, they are the point person for issues that may arise. Event coordinators need a minimum high school diploma, and a college degree in communications, marketing, or business management is often preferred.
