This is an extremely competitive field. That being said, if you can manage to break into it and you are good at it, then it can be rewarding. It is high paced, and may require being on your feet a lot. This can be both good and bad. I enjoy the ongoing relationships built with my clients, but I also get the handful of fussy clients.

In this job my role is always changing, I get to meet many people, and there are always different challenges. You are only ever as good as your last event.

I am a professional project manager so I like the project management aspect of event management. I started out working on software and hardware projects in the private sector but when I moved to the public sector, I started doing event/conference management more and more. I found it more enjoyable. I also like using my supply chain management knowledge when dealing with procurement and logistics.
