Event Planner Conferences
As a professional event planner, attending conferences is vital to stay continually updated on what’s happening in your industry. There are many resources that event planners can use to stay updated on the top industry new and trends, like Instagram or Pinterest for example. However, conferences present the opportunity to not only get more education, but to make connections with like-minded professionals in your field. So many amazing opportunities can arise from attending event planner conferences! You should challenge yourself to attending at least one conference in your first year of business as an event planner.

Continued Education for Event Planners
Continued education is also important to your business’s success, as it keeps you grounded and in the know. Things change in the industry throughout the years, including what’s trendy in event planner services. Have you considered adding a specialty service to your business, like destination or luxury wedding and event planning? By entering a niche market you’re opening yourself up to more opportunities and a larger clientele in a way that your competitors can’t.
