Corporate event planners have become a major part of the special events industry. It is a demanding role and must be managed carefully, said Lyn Morehead, Corporate College executive. “Corporate events span all industries. The Wedding Planning Institute’s Corporate Event Planning Course provides detailed guidelines on how to design events, plan events, set budgets, execute events successfully, review performances, and charge for services.”
