I don't know of any intellectual traditions here but at least some people who go into event planning/special events often have a theatre management or theatre production background. In small organizations, the position is often tied to development (fundraising) and/or public relations/communication. It's a highly stressful, complex job that requires good "relationship-building" and "communication skills" (I've helped a few people obtain these positions).
