The Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce is the largest chamber in New England. With extensive networking activities, the Chamber is the hub of the business community in Worcester and is dedicated to enhancing the city’s economic affluence. During my time as an intern at the Chamber I have experienced first -hand all of the countless hours of brainstorming, organizing, and planning that go into sponsoring an event.
I have had the opportunity to assist the Chamber plan for their biggest event of the year, the Central Mass Business Expo. While planning for the Expo began last year, I have experienced the marketing of the event, along with confirming all of the details. Over the past two months I have applied techniques that I learned in my classes, specifically my Public Relations class. For my PR class, I held a mock press conference announcing the launch of a new product. I am now involved in the announcement of the Central Mass Business Expo. While the Chamber’s Expo is different from my mock press conference, I saw the similarities in launching an event.
I am applying the skills that I have learned and gaining experience in the marketing and communications industries, which I will take with me as I start my career in the professional world.
