Educational Paths There are no strict educational requirements for event planners. Many community colleges offer diplomas in event and meeting planning as well as hospitality management. There are no specified university programs that focus on event planning, but an undergraduate degree is always helpful. College or university programs in hotel and restaurant management as well as event planning can provide a student with skills and knowledge in the areas of managing staff as well as coordinating and planning events such as banquets and dances. Most employers prefer to hire event planners with experience in the coordination and supervision of one or more events with a related college education. Experts suggest volunteering in a planning firm or in a related field. Why not organize a school charity event or dance? Go into the local tourism office and find out if there are any internships or apprenticeships offered. source::::
