Kellie Roth

Major: Event Management



Company/Organization: Urban Allure Events and Wish Upon A Wedding
Company/Organization website: http://www.UrbanAllureEvents.com
Destination: Chicago
Timeframe: Summer

Advisor/Coordinator Email: rmcclain@iastate.edu

I was responsible for...
My responsibilities included contacting clients, responding to their questions, a lot of emails, creating Pinterest boards for inspiration, attending networking events, researching vendors, meeting with vendors, working on social media platforms, and working on a team to create successful events.

I accomplished...
I was able to assist in planning Wish Upon a Wedding's first annual Summer Social! (fundraising event) It was so cool to see all the hard work put into the event come to life before my eyes.

I learned...
My greatest lesson I learned as of now would be to get to know people in your industry. So much of working in events is who you know and the connections you create.

Advice for others...
Contact as many potential internship companies, even if they don't say they have internship positions on their websites! It will never hurt to ask if they have opportunities available.
