Depending on the need, event staff may also help the event host entertain guests and answer inquiries. They must be very familiar with the venue’s layout, facilities, and other event specifics. 

 

After the event, event staff help clean up the venue and assist in taking inventory of all used and unused items. Storing, packing supplies, and loading them to vehicles may be required. Lastly, event staff may also assist in handling invoices and billing.
