You attended a friend’s wedding and were thrilled to see how well everything turned out. The wedding was spectacular, and the event planner was all over the place making sure everything goes according to plan without a hitch.
But do you feel that you could have done a better job as the event planner? Are you, therefore, considering a career in events planning in Nigeria?
As difficult as it is, event planners love their job, and that’s why they do it with a lot of passion.
Do you know why they love their jobs? Here are seven reasons why event planners in Nigeria love their job.
1. Never a Dull Moment
For event planners, there’s never a dull moment. The variety of events and clientele in Nigeria mean that you can go from planning a wedding today to planning a product launching the next and a birthday party afterwards.
The variety they say is the spice of life and event planners have more than their fair share in their job.
2. Team Spirit
Event planning is like a team sport! You need to have a flair for working with people from various backgrounds, with multiple skills and qualifications.
Event planners are like coaches of a soccer team. They strive to bring out the best in each vendor they work with and to actualise the dreams of their clients for the event.
3. Fulfilling Clients’ Wishes
As an events planner, you have the opportunity to help fulfil your client’s wishes whether it’s for a dream wedding, an exotic birthday bash or a spectacular product launching!
The satisfaction of knowing that you’ve helped to make that event come to reality is heartwarming.
4. Sights and Sounds
Your clients can come from another city, state, country or even continent! So you get to travel the world and experience different sights and sounds.
Travelling helps to develop your personality. Why would you not love such a job?
5. Cutting Edge Technology
These days events and technology often go hand in hand. Many events planners seek creative ways of using technology to make the work and activities a lot easier.
Here at Fontt Enterprises, we appreciate cutting-edge technology that’s why we were one of the first in the country to have our custom-made online marketplace for events in Nigeria!
6. Not a 9-to-5 Job
If you’re looking for a regular 9-to-5 job, then the life of an event planner is not for you. Event planning is not a 9-to-5 job. You have to have a flexible schedule.
You must be ready to work long hours, on weekends and even on holidays! At Fontt Enterprises, our team often have to sacrifice spending time with family, friends and loved ones during holidays and festive periods to make our client’s event possible.
That’s why we appreciate the kind words and testimonials from appreciative clients. It makes all our sacrifices worth it.
7. Continuous Challenges
You face constant challenges mainly if you’re in a country like Nigeria that has its unique problems.
It’s either you’re trying to find the generator guy to turn on the standby generator at the event, or trying to get hold of the janitor the clear the trash, or to get the electrician, plumber or other vendors to deliver one thing or the other.
