What is the difference between a Party Planner and an Event Planner?

Party planners and event planners both plan events, so the work they do has many similarities.

However, there are some differences. While an event planner may organize corporate meetings, conferences and public events, a party planner specializes in social events.

Party planners organize events in which the primary focus is to socialize, celebrate and have fun. The events planned by those who specialize as party planners may also be more intimate.

According to Orin Kennedy, a celebrity party and event planner based in Beverly Hills, "Event means large - several hundred guests - or something more corporate or charitable in nature, whereas a party could be anything from a dinner for 12 to a birthday or cocktail reception for 100 or more."

Of course you can be both a party planner and an event planner. If you are interested in learning how to become an event planner, check out the FabJob Guide to Become an Event Planner.
