Top 11 Challenges Corporate Event Managers Face [Infographic]

September 24, 2018

In July, Corporate Event News conducted a reader survey which asked corporate event professionals to select and rank the top challenges they face on the job.

Event professionals are still being asked to do more, with less. The number one challenge reported by the majority of readers was “low budget, high expectations.”   

Most event managers work far more than 40 hours a week. Early mornings, evenings, weekends — all par for the course. Between deadlines, meetings and travel it can seem impossible to take time off. Therefore, it’s not surprising that trying to find enough time to get everything done came in at number 3.

Corporate social responsibility and sustainability are becoming a greater focus area for events. Therefore, we decided to make our list a top 11 rather than top 10 in order to include the growing challenge of planning events that are more environmentally friendly.

We used the survey data to create an infographic. Read on to see all of the challenges and how they rank!

Business success — you may think it’s all about the bottom line, but savvy CEOs like those at Apple, Starbucks and IKEA know otherwise. Although profits play a big role, it’s also important for companies to be socially responsible by considering their impact on the environment, their local economy and their customers. One way that companies can practice corporate social responsibility (CSR) is by incorporating it into company events.
