5 industry tips to break into event marketing.

***  Quora answer [1] ***

  1. Event marketing. What is interesting about an event management career is that it is a fast paced, ever changing industry so you will definitely not be bored. You will be able to attend many events. EDC Las Vegas is going on right now. That sounds like fun to me.
  2. Keep learning.To be successful in the field, you will have to gain the trust of the community along with building your resume as well. Your reputation precedes you! It is a very small community where everyone knows each other. The more experience you have, the more successful that event will be, therefore improving your reputation. Breaking into the event management field as a graduate isn’t as hard as one would think. Just start pounding the pavement with applications for event management and as regular event staff. Your resume will stand out to most hiring managers
  3. Business plan. This seems basic enough but is commonly overlooked and undervalued. Making a plan of action gives you something to work towards and helps you stay organized.
  4. Research. After you write out your plan, set some reasonable goals and head out to obtain them. Start out with smaller goals until it gets easier. Going into any business, you should really know the ins and outs of the industry, find out who the top influencers are, and position yourself as a professional in your particular niche.
  5. Network. Everywhere you go you should be networking. Be active on social media and try to stay current with the event marketing news. By remaining active within your niche, you’ll continue to gain valuable experience while building a following, email lists with potential clients, and learn.
