Some Special Events Coordinator jobs require you to be adept at planning every type of even from a child's birthday party to a corporate convention while others may be more specialized such as Government Meeting Planners and Convention Service Managers.

Special Events Coordinator Education


Most employers will look for Special Events Coordinator candidates who have a bachelor's degree. More colleges are offering tourism management and hospitality degrees, so applicants holding one of these or a related degree will likely be favored by hiring managers. However, if you have a bachelor's degree in an unrelated field, but have one or two years’ experience working at a hotel or in event planning, you'll still be in the running.

Special Events Coordinator Salaries


As can be expected with any job that requires a degree, Special Events Coordinators can command a higher salary than others who don't hold degrees. In 2012, the median salary was $45,810. This is no 9 to 5 job, so expect to work weekends, evenings and long hours, especially if your goal is to earn the $79,270 paycheck that the top 10 percent take home.
