Meeting planners are responsible for planning and coordinating meetings and conferences. This includes performing planning and logistics tasks prior to meetings, as well as performing management and troubleshooting for meetings themselves. Duties for meeting planners generally include developing timelines and budgets, publishing brochures and other meeting materials, negotiating lodging and travel, renting event spaces, and managing speaking schedules. Being detail-oriented is essential, as meeting planners are responsible for planning multiple events at one time.
