I am responsible for setting up events and also running them and tearing them down. It is my responsibility to read the BEO and know what needs to be done and how to do it. During the event I have to know at what time what needs to be done. Finally, when the event is over, I tear it down and clear the room out.


An accomplishment I have achieved is being able to read a BEO and know what everything means on it. It doesn’t specifically say “you need coffee cups out” but you have to analyze it and if there is a coffee station, know what goes there

What advice would you give?

My advice would be to enjoy your time. Yes, it’s a lot of hours but it’s super fun and a great experience so make the most of it!
