Planning an event for your organization or business can be a daunting task, but with some quick tips and tricks, you will avoid common mistakes that could derail the success of your event. Here are 5 ways to plan an event without tripping up:
Keep track of all correspondence related to the event so there is no confusion about who needs to do what.
Know what you need
Make a list of everything that is necessary in order for your event to go off without a hitch, including food and drink options (if applicable), décor, etc.
Share responsibilities among team members
Delegate tasks so that no one person is responsible for too much work;
Research venues before booking
Compare locations based on their features and amenities, such as catering availability, power needs, audio/video equipment, or parking spaces;
Avoid overspending on things like catering and drinks if they are not necessary or useful to the success of your event – these should be considered “extras” rather than necessities.
