The year 2023 has been very positive for meeting and event planning careers. The event industry and the hospitality industry as a whole were hit hard during the pandemic, but with the world opening up again, the demand for events and gatherings has been soaring. With TISOH, the International School of Hospitality, you can train for a career in the exciting world of the event planning industry!
Meeting and event planning is an exciting and dynamic field that has seen significant growth in recent years. With the industry expected to continue to expand through 2023 and beyond, there has never been a better time to consider a career in meeting and event planning!
One reason for the growth in this field is the increasing demand for face-to-face meetings, events, and gatherings as the world has moved past the pandemic. Businesses and organizations have realized the importance of in-person meetings and events for building relationships, networking, and face-to-face interaction. This has led to an increase in demand for meeting and event planners who can create and execute successful events. In addition, with the world becoming more globalized, we are seeing an increasing demand for planners with expertise in planning international events and those who are fluent in multiple languages.
In 2023, live events are back! As the world has opened back up, there has been a resurgence of live events. This means that there is a need for planners who specialize in live events and have the skills to plan and execute large-scale events with health and safety protocols in place.
With the increasing demand for events, the industry continues to see a rise in niche events that cater to specific audiences and interests. There is also a continued trend towards smaller, more niche audiences and more regional events. This is opening up new opportunities for planners who specialize in certain types of events such as corporate, cultural, or sustainable events.
Sustainability has been a growing trend in the event industry for a while, but it has taken center stage in 2023. Event planners with experience in planning eco-friendly events are in high demand.
During the pandemic, there were many virtual events held on Zoom and other platforms. The pandemic accelerated a trend of virtual and hybrid events, which continues to grow in 2023. As a result, event planners with experience in designing and executing both in-person and virtual events are in high demand.
The return of meetings and events, a huge sector of the hospitality industry, in 2023 means there is a growing need for a talented body of professionals who are responsible for creating, organizing, and executing complex gatherings. At TISOH, the International School of Hospitality, we are at the forefront of developing and cultivating these event professionals.
