In the Meeting Planner realm certificates and ongoing training prove more valuable than in the rest of the industry. The most valuable expertise are gained through hands on experience. If you choose to get an education in Events Management, choose programs that include a lot of trial by fire. It's the only way to get a clear picture of what this industry is really like.

If you want to start your own company you absolutely have to get a lot of experience first; just like in any field.
