The event industry was quiet for a while due to corona, but it’s back in business! With more than 1,000 festivals per year and the most conferences in Europe, the Netherlands is an important player in the field of events. There is also much to experience in this sector internationally. Let’s get acquainted with the events industry.
What is happening in the event industry?
Curious about the current trends in the event industry? For example, hybrid events: they have become increasingly popular since corona. Purpose marketing (in which an organization takes social issues into account) is also on the rise, and the customer experience has become an integral part of the industry.
Where do you find your dream job?
When we talk about events, that also means festivals. However, the event industry is much broader than that! In addition to jobs at event organisations, your Tio diploma allows you to work at conference and exhibition locations, amusement parks, cruise lines, banks, and insurance companies or marketing agencies, for example. Use your talents as an event manager, conference organiser, marketing manager, wedding planner, or general manager. As a Tio student you have an edge on the labor market, just ask these alumni. By the way, did you know that 38% of Tio's event alumni started their own business?
