There is something truly unique about working in events. Whether your an event planner, an event organizer, or event promoter it’s sometimes hard to find others that can relate to what the job is like.
People think “oh, how cool you get to work in events for a living!”
Yes. It is a pretty cool job, but there’s a lot of unique challenges and stress that comes along with it.
These memes are some of our favorites we’ve put together for our Instagram page for event promoters.
Feel free to share these around in your proverbial water-coolers online… or just read through and let us know which are your favorites.
Event Organizer Memes
You guys are getting paid?
Loving events means a lot of don’t realize we can make money when we first get into it. It took me years of promoting local shows before I realized it was possible to not lose money on every show. I just loved it so much and was willing to dump money from my day job into the shows to make them happen.

When it rains…
Putting together an outdoor event can be amazing until that dreaded rain forecast comes through. We do our best, but this is what I feel like every time I’m trying to explain how we’re going to make it all work.
Just follow the plan.
No plan survives first contact with the day of show.
No amount of caffeine can fix this anymore.
When you’re too tired after planning the event to socialize at your own event.
Not like there’s hundreds of people waiting for you to start or anything.
Same happens for speakers at a business event.

Well here it is folks ☝️
But why? It’d help us not have a heart attack every time.
Some cities are particularly notorious for nobody buying tickets ahead of time (Omaha 👀).
When an event gets picked up by one of these “things to do” lists on sites like Visit Denver, they tend to get a lot of traction.
That’s why we help organizer automate posting to community calendars that make posts like this. No guarantee you’ll get onto those lists, but you’ll at least get every event you create considered.
The Facebook Ads aren’t working as well as they used to. Do you:
Or $1,000. Pick your journey.
Wait for the last minute strikes again.
Hard to say it’s the hottest event in town if this is the case, but I believe you that it’s a really good event.

Honestly some of the most memorable events I’ve been to were small an intimate.
So you went with spend more on Facebook, I see.

Is it marketing’s job?
Everything the light touches is marketing.
This one was from Dave Gerhardt towards B2B marketers, but I think it still holds true here.
Do Facebook events still matter?
Anyone else notice they moved events off the main navigation menu for business pages? Half the business owners I talk to couldn’t even find their own events page.
Guess Facebook doesn’t care about events anymore.
How do we get people to show up to an emerging artist showcase?
Who would want to partner with the community and reach a wider audience?
(Hint: The organizers that are doing this are doing great.)
Facebook Ads aren’t working. What do you do?
It’s a good bandaid… but it’s still a bandaid.
In the end…
Keep your head up. Lots of people would love to have your job.
