Event Coordinator Jobs

Event Coordinator Overview


If you've ever attended a lecture and wondered who booked such interesting speakers, you have the Event Coordinator to thank. These planners work on a variety of unique events such as conventions, meetings, and conferences. Event Coordinator jobs carry duties such as selecting locations for events and negotiating contracts for the venues, arranging for services such as food, sound systems and lodging and helping with marketing to publicize the event.

Event Coordinator Education


Most employers hiring Event Coordinators require at least a bachelor's degree in hospitality management or business, but sometimes will accept a degree in a different field if you have previous event planning experience. DegreeDirectory.org reports that you can obtain an Event Coordinator Certification that may be helpful if you don't hold a bachelor's degree, or if the one you have isn't in a hospitality management-related field. If you choose the certification route over obtaining a degree, keep in mind that you'll have to be re-certified every five years to keep your certification current.

Event Coordinator Job Market


Event Coordinator jobs of all types are expected to increase in demand over the next 10 years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lumps all coordinator jobs into their projection of a 33 percent increase between 2012 and 2022. For now, there are still plenty of opportunities with over 94,000 Meeting, Convention and Event Planners in the U.S.

Event Coordinator Salaries


If you land an Event Coordinator position without obtaining a degree, you may find yourself in the lowest 10 percent, earning just over $26,560 annually. That's not a bad place to start if you bring minimal experience or a certification to the table, and if you have over two years’ experience, you can likely command more. The median income for Event Coordinator jobs is around $45,800, but with a degree and some experience you may be able to make it into the top 10 percent and bring in a nice, cushy $79,270 before taxes.
