How Much It Pays

Most planners hold bachelor’s degrees in meeting and event management or other common fields of study such as communications and business, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

With an average annual salary of $47,350, planners may not be the most heavily compensated occupation on this list, but there are other perks to consider. On top of regular travel, demand for event planners is on the rise, with employment expected to increase by 11 percent from 2016 to 2026 — making it one of the fastest-growing jobs across all occupations.
