Event managers: the professionals that make your business event a success

 Tags: MICE

Event managers are in charge of designing, planning, producing and promoting events in line with a specific strategy. Although it is a booming profession, many people are still largely unaware of the role event planners play in event management. In this post, we’ll tell you everything you need to know. 


What qualities should every good event manager have? 

Event managers are professionals with a diverse skill set consolidated with interdisciplinary training. They are tasked with completing a wide range of tasks, both within the company and regarding the planning of the event in question. They must, therefore, have a flexible approach, and be able to adapt to changing situations and resolve any problems that should come up. In sum, every good event manager should be: 

-  Observant, organised and responsible. Be capable of managing several things at the same time, set out priorities and keep everything under control at all times. 

-   A good communicator and negotiator, sociable and enjoy working with the public. 

-  Able to handle uncertainty, be very creative and able to come up with great ideas to resolve unexpected problems

-  A strategic thinker and able to make the most of resources to make the event a resounding success. 

-    A great team player and leader.
