Event Management Job Outlook
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of meeting, convention, and event planners is projected to grow 11 percent from 2016 to 2026. This is faster than the average for all occupations. The demand for professionally planned meetings and events is expected to remain steady as businesses and organizations continue to host events regularly. Despite the spread of online communication, face-to-face interaction remains important.
Candidates with professional hospitality, tourism and event management education have greater job opportunities. Those who have experience in the hospitality industry or with virtual meeting software and social media outlets should also have an advantage.
These figures tell us that careers in event management are on the rise.
