In the lead up to an event, an event producer will spend their days planning the logistics of the event, managing budgets, and hiring specialists to arrange the catering, building the event space, setting up sound, lighting and music, booking models, as well as hair and make-up teams.
Event producers also need to consider the health and safety of their attendees and staff, ensuring that any risks are managed so that accidents are prevented. On an event, a producer spends their time ensuring that all the moving parts are in place so that the event runs smoothly. It’s a highly collaborative job — they often manage large teams and delegate tasks to others. After an event, a producer gathers feedback and insights to report back to the client.
A career highlight for a fashion event producer would be running a big event that they’re passionate about with a great team.
