How to become an event coordinator?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Have been thinking about working as an event coordinator meanwhile I start my catering business, but I don't really have experience as an coordinator only in the kitchen. How can I get a job in event coordinating?

I would attempt to maybe work or stage in FOH in a few private events  , maybe weddings etc... to get some experience and to gain some ideas.

Possibly work in a high end catering company as well.

This.

 

Get any job available with a quality caterer and use it as a learning process and stepping stone into the position of event coordinator. Show your interest in that area and attempt to help out as much as possible towards that goal, even donating time in order to learn and get an inside tract.

Yep--get yourself a job with a full service caters or ,perhaps, a big hotel with banguet and conference facilities----

 

Because of the planning--lead times and behind the seens coordination--it will take you a long time to learn---

 

If you do this--gather names of the trades that you trust.

Good entertainment companies that can provide bands and other talent----

Tent rental companies--

Rentals for serving ware---

Any contacts that might be useful in your future business---

 

You would have to be in on the planning stages to learn these things.
