If you need to plan an event, but you have no background in event planning management or so-called EO. But somehow this task has been entrusted to your shoulders, calm down. We’re here to help.

Many organizations do not have people dedicated to event management. This often causes the event to fail. Here are some helpful event planning tips to help you:

1. Strategy Board

No matter what type of event you plan, you need to map out a strategy. What is the purpose of your event? Are you introducing new products or services to customers? Whether your ultimate goal is to gain influence, you must write it on the whiteboard strategy. Look at your ideal audience, what message you want to convey is understandable, you will not know if your event will be a success or a mess unless you have the right metrics.

2. The Importance of the Budget

After having the objectives outlined, you need to consider how much it will cost to achieve those goals. Personally, I make a list of every single cost item I need to create this event. This can include invitations, graphic care for websites, food, drinks, music, gifts, etc. Think back to the event you’ve ever attended and imagine the little things involved. What you really need. Checklist of all needs that have been and has not been met and start developing the overall price of the item.

3. Time and Place for Each Event

 The answers to the event questions should first plan when and where the event wants to be held. If you are targeting a busy executive, for example, you can plan a sumptuous breakfast. The best networking event presented at night with a cocktail. Presentation in a bar. Realize how the environment greatly affects the attention span of people and messages to be conveyed.
