Got Passion for the Blues?
As an event manager, you’ll support the musical artists in showcase events, hire and supervise venue staff, reserve a location, arrange catering services, and set up other accommodations for the event. You would, for example, hire someone to run audio-visual equipment, arrange for webcast & broadcast service technicians to communicate with venues, or act as an event concierge to arrange for limousines to pick up guests, artists & other principals at the venues . You may monitor the event while it’s taking place and resolve issues on site or monitor activities in international territories as they arise. An event manager is also responsible for ensuring compliance with all health, and safety issues, and to report non-legal intellectual property issues and regulations to senior management. Additionally, you may help promote the event and develop advertising plans.
Event managers must have excellent organizational skills. You’ll also need to be detail-oriented and have the ability to work well within deadline restrictions. Because this job entails working closely with cast, crew, outside vendors, and sponsors, you’ll also need superb written and oral communication skills. Event managing is a hands-on position, and you may do some physical labor when deemed necessary.
