      Career Portrait

      According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Employment of meeting, convention, and event planners is expected to grow 44 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. As globalization increases and businesses continue to recognize the value of professionally planned meetings, the need for meetings and events is expected to grow.

      […]In addition to rapid employment growth, many job openings are expected to arise from the need to replace workers who leave the occupation. However, job seekers can expect strong competition because the occupation usually attracts more applicants than job openings.”
