Event planning internships abroad

Event planning internship

  • You always have plans for a Friday night. Gathering friends and organizing social activities has been your part-time job since kindergarten. Event planners usually work in the marketing department across all industries, organizing company events that build brand awareness. The best event planners are hired by event management companies, who organize large-scale corporate events. Event planners have strong organizational and time management skills, but they also have to be creative in case the task is to organize an apocalypse-themed fundraising event in an abandoned zoo. It all depends on the company´s taste. Event planners also need to be good communicators; they need to book the best speakers, persuade people to participate, and finally ensure all the suppliers, decorators, caterers know, where and when they need to deliver.

    As an event intern, you will help the team to organize events, contact suppliers and book venues. You won´t need a specific educational background, but mainly the skills mentioned above. This internship is well suited for cities that never sleep, like Shanghai or Hong Kong.
