Meetings, conventions, sports, concerts, and other large-scale events are a big part of any city. In Denver, the hub for the Rocky Mountain Region that connects people across states, events are a large part of the economy. Denver’s vibrant event season – which typically is in its height from May to October each year – provides ample temporary jobs and exceptional entertainment for the city and state.
Events, whether large or small, require a specific skill set to ensure that they run smoothly and successfully. Roles for those working on events range from those managing and running the show to those working registration desks or booths. While some of the roles may be larger than others, each one is vital to ensure the success of an event.

Types of Events & Required Skill Sets
Events have a wide range, and each one requires different skill sets and knowledge to operate smoothly. Staff who are experienced in serving and waiting tables are better suited to weddings while staff who are experienced in customer service and handling large crowds are better suited for conferences. Even employees who manage large events and ensure their success need differing skillsets depending on the type of event they’re hosting. Sometimes nonprofit experience or insider knowledge of the sports world is necessary to ensure an event’s successful run.
Some of the common skills that event staff need are as follows:
Industry knowledge pertaining to the event’s target audience.
Excellent customer service skills & friendly demeanor.
The ability to multitask & complete every project assigned.
