Event Planning is Glamorous — Isn’t It?
a>How do you get experience on your resume and get course credit at the same time? DCTC Meeting and Event Management students did when they interned at the recent Bootleggers Ball. The event was the 2012 awards evening for the Minneapolis/St Paul Chapter of the International Special Event Society (ISES). ISES members represent the top-tier of event design professionals, so everything these members do is sure to be over-the-top amazing.
From start to finish, this culmination of the year’s events was stellar in production. I had the pleasure of witnessing the event’s strike. Yes, there is glamour . . . and then there is strike. Here are some photos of our students hard at work on the other end of the experience. All, still amazed at the opportunity to help put an event of this calibre together and now more certain than ever that they are entering the right profession . . . even if some parts aren’t so glamerous. It is, after all, all about the guest!
Special thanks go to the board members of ISES MSP Chapter, Cara Tuenge, DCTC alumn and coordinator for the 2012 Bootleggers Ball, AND the DCTC students who were part of the Bootlegger experience.
