The Event Planning internship program is designed to introduce students to all aspects of event production and management. Our interns gain a valuable understanding of many different aspects within an event and how they all interact with one another to produce the special event.
Interns will assist with event planning, permit requests, vendor relations, event supplies, sponsorship fulfillment, event marketing, entertainment production, database management, venue and site development and so much more. Our Interns learn about implementing media and promotional programs that are tied to media and corporate sponsors. They will interface with corporate clients, vendors, government agencies, as well as other nonprofit organizations. Our interns walk away with all of the real experience that our event mangers face on a daily basis.
