Event Planning at XFINITY Live!

Participating in weekly marketing and event meetings at XFINTIY Live! Philadelphia allowed me to learn how to strategically plan an event for 300-7,500 guests. Other participants of these marketing and event meetings included the Director of Marketing, Marketing Manager, Events Manager, Events Coordinator, Interactive Marketing Manager, and  Audio/Visual/Lighting Engineer.

I also attended weekly marketing and event meetings for Comcast-Spectacor. These meetings are attended by the marketing directors and managers of various entities of Comcast-Spectacor, such as Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia Flyers, PLL Park, Premium Seating, Technology Solutions, etc. We discussed events and marketing strategies for events with audience numbers between 7,000 and 17,000 people.
