They use their networks and relationships with these vendors to ensure a fair rate along with reasonable contract terms of services while organizing an event. These organizations employ experts and professionals who organize events as per the specific requirements of clients, following a strict budget.

In terms of the price of equipment rental, venue, catering, and others, an experienced professional will be able to indicate whether or not the customer’s budget is reasonable.

Growing Popularity of Virtual Events

The COVID-19 pandemic is accountable for the growing popularity of virtual events worldwide. The imposition of lockdowns and strict regulations on social gatherings provided a new area of innovation and growth opportunities for event planning organizations.

Event planners now organize webinars, interactive performances, summits, and classes efficiently for customers. Event planning service providers plan for the agenda behind these events, understand the client’s requirements, and look for a prominent platform for organizing and scheduling the event according to the client’s requirements. They gather technical knowledge and expertise to make sure that the online events are carried out to perfection.

Virtual events are more cost-effective than physical events and offer the opportunity to reach larger audiences without any geographical restrictions. This is an essential factor behind the trending pattern of virtual events, which is driving the demand for online event planning services worldwide.

Stiff Business Environment for New Market Participants

The event planning services space is a client-focused market and is largely dependent on customer experience. For new market participants, it is difficult to offer cost-effective deals within the required time and deadlines. This is a challenging factor for new businesses to enter the market and offer their services to match up with customer standards. Also, misconduct or any variation in organizing an event can result in an adverse impact on customer experience.

The requirement of a huge budget in the initial stage may hamper new market players from entering the market and gaining customer trust easily. New market participants will find it difficult to gain customer trust in the initial stage of their business and will face tough competition from large and existing market players that have years of expertise in the industry.

Country-wise Insights

United States Accounts for Largest Share of Event Planning Services Market

Digitalization has improved every aspect of event production in the U.S., reduced costs, and is increasingly being used in place of in-person meetings, which is fuelling the demand for event planners.

  • The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) emphasizes the role of technology by stating a crucial need for information measuring the importance of in-person meetings and business events to the U.S. economy.

Events and conferences are being made possible by digitalization in several sectors, including education, science, government, and healthcare. Event planning organizations are using digital technology to effectively organize and manage conferences, trade exhibitions, and other gatherings.

  • The U.S. government and the Small Business Administration launched a US$ 16 billion federal assistance fund in March 2021 for live-event enterprises such as music concerts, theatres, and others.
  • To grow the events sector in the post-pandemic era, Live Events Coalition, a non-profit organization in the U.S., promotes face-to-face interactions and supports alternatives such as event video streaming.
  • Through financial programs and assistance, the COVID-19 Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act (2020), which was passed by Congress, is assisting conference and event organizers in remaining afloat.

To draw significant investments and boost the regional events industry, government authorities are sponsoring conferences and business meetings.

  • For instance, the U.S. government hosts the Select USA annual investment event.

This is giving the industry of event planners in the United States solid support as the market grows.

Sporting Events Fuelling Demand for Event Planning Services in China

The growing number of sports events in China is a major factor driving market growth in the country. Sports is a massive business and a largely popular form of entertainment in China. China organizes various competitive sports such as national quadrennial multi-sport events, known as the national games. With this increasing number of sports events, the country exhibits a higher need for event planning organizations to execute sports events efficiently.

In addition, China accounts for a substantial number of corporate offices and businesses with an abundance of lower-wage workers, which drives the demand for corporate event planners.

Demand for Organization of Music Concerts to Grow Rapidly

The music concerts segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the increasing popularity of these events among people, mainly the youth and middle-aged individuals. Attending a concert as a teenager constitutes a sense of joy that is difficult to replicate as an adult. This results in excessive growth in the footfall of youth at music concerts and drives the demand for event planners to efficiently manage and coordinate these events.
