GCN Talent’s Events Industry Salary Survey reports the gender pay gap in the events industry has narrowed over the past five years, with women earning 28% less in take-home pay and 16% in basic salary. The research was conducted across four main industry sectors – operations, sales, content and marketing – with the lowest paid being operations.

Results indicate that the pay gap in events is predominantly driven by incentive payments such as bonuses, commission or profit share. Although women are earning over a quarter less on average, the gap has reduced in basic salaries for senior managers, CEOs and MDs, with female basic salaries surpassing those of men at these levels.
