Banquet captains oversee all aspects of catered events. This includes planning and cleaning up for events. In addition to managing events, banquet captains often have to work the floor, stepping in as server or bartender as needed. They must also see to specific customer concerns. Although there is no projection solely for future banquet captain employment, employment of food service managers is expected to grow 5 percent between 2008 and 2018, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
