When you’re planning an event, it can be challenging to figure out where to start in the event planning process. If you’re a seasoned event planner, you’ll probably have your method for the event planning madness that works for you. For those who are just getting their event planning business off the ground, though, the path from having an idea for an event to executing the experience can be murky and unclear. Thankfully, the video “How to Plan an Event – Project Management Training” lays out some easy steps for new event planners to follow on their first few events before they have a foundation of what event planning should look like.
While planning an event, you’ll want to think about it on a general and specific level first. Ask questions like what’s happening at it, where is the event center, and other basics about the ordeal. You’ll also want to think of any legal considerations like liability, depending on what level of risk is involved in the event.
After plotting out the basics, you can move on to logistics, picking a venue, and contacting catering companies for food and beverage. Once that’s complete, it’s time to develop marketing and advertising materials. Based on the size and type of event you’re hosting, you might need to hire volunteers next.
