What’s the difference between an event planner and an event consultant?

An event planner makes critical decisions regarding what, when, who, and how. While the event consultant, on the other hand, is responsible for making sure all the details are executed and that each vendor shows up on time and performs appropriately.

Simply put, the event consultant is the individual who is responsible for the entire execution of your event. For an event consultant, it is necessary to stay calm even in adverse conditions. It sounds like simple advice but very difficult to prove. If you can stay calm, you can overcome any situation.
