Event Management

Creating and coordinating events that bring people together – from business meetings to concert series to food festivals and more – is a complex logistical task, whether you’re hosting 40 people or 4,000. Meeting planners, event coordinators, volunteer coordinators, event managers, and festival organizers must be able to work well with people and juggle many different tasks at once. From entry-level jobs working as gate attendants or security personnel to leadership positions articulating event vision and strategy, the opportunities in this sector are many and varied. The opportunity extends to Experience Grand Rapids, where our events managers – all Certified Meeting Professionals – work with meeting planners across the country to host successful events in Grand Rapids/Kent County.
