What does it take to organize an event (apart from some help)! Each conference or event will involve a lot of forward planning and organisation on the day itself to make sure all goes well.
Anyway, what does an event organiser do? In a nutshell, they are responsible for an event from its planning stage right through to the running of the event itself on the day(s). This can involve a myriad of tasks, depending on the type of event.
