Planning an event can be a daunting task for many as it can involve a lot of time management and huge lists of tasks needing to be ticked off to ensure the event is perfect. We understand here at Office Wings that beginning this planning can be the most difficult task, as you just don’t know where to start.
We have gathered some of our main tips to planning an event to make sure you have minimising stress whilst being as productive as possible.
Organising your workplace, whether that be your diary, desk or computer. This will help you to clear your mind and not worry about the mess. Use colour coding, brain storming, Pinterest boards and checklists to organise yourself and your event.
You should firstly decide on a realistic and truthful budget. Then make sure you stick to this and do not go over your spending. Keep checking back to this through our planning.
Find your venue, make sure it’s reliable and tell them all the information they need to know about your event. This will help will minimising surprises a long the way for both you and the venue holder.
Once you have your venue planned and in place it is always a good idea to find some back up options for this, find some other ones you like and would also fit your event.
Market your event well. This will help you sell the tickets to the event and make money. The better marketing you have, the more the word will spread about this event, which is also getting your brand name out there too.
A great idea for free marketing is using social media, use Instagram for good photographs, Facebook for lives videos and ensure you have a good range of hashtags for people to use when posting about the event.
5. Minimise last minute changes
Last minute changes are one thing; stressful. This is the last thing you want the day before or even on the day of. The more organisation and back up plans you have for each of your steps will decrease the stress around the event as it creeps closer.
As you can imagine, there is a lot more steps which have to continue on from this list as it is only the beginning. But here at Office Wings we are here to help!
