5 ways to avoid common mistakes when planning an event

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:

Get organized

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; 

Budget wisely

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.
