“My favorite parts of my job are the times I get to create that custom event with an excited guest. That moment they see the vision and they start getting as excited as you are is one of the best parts of the job.” - Nicholas S., Lead Event Coordinator in Grapevine, TX

“I love how unique my job is. I love event coordinating, but I never wanted to do it in a hotel. I think this is one the best positions I have ever held. The most important aspects of my job are to sell the Main Event experience to both corporate and groups. It takes a very outgoing person to fulfill this role due to the constant client interaction and prospecting.” - Carly C., Event Coordinator in Pittsburgh, PA
