Careers in Event Management

Carve a career in event management at Red Dot. Working in event management can be very hectic, but at the same time, very rewarding.

Most event management focuses on concerts, launches, parties, conventions, and special events. We work for corporations, private individuals, governments, non-profits organisations and most importantly on improving ourselves as individuals.

Careers Most of the planning work for events is done prior to the event; however, event planners are required to be on site during the event, to make certain everything goes smoothly. Most positions are full time; however, some may be contract positions. Occasionally, positions are strictly for a particular event. Generally, we look for energetic people with a passion for organising events to fill such positions.
