As mentioned before in this article an event is anything from a talent contest to a sports competition.
As an event planner, before you can create a memorable event you need to ask yourself some key questions.
Answers to these questions are critical if you want to create a memorable event for your client.
We have highlighted these questions in this infographic below:
These are the questions you need to ask:
Why do you intend holding your event? Why is your event important? Why do you think your event is practical? Providing answers to these questions will help you know if your event is necessary or not.
Who are the stakeholders in the event? For corporate events, the stakeholders include the business owners, staff, guest, etc.
For large events like the Olympics etc, these will have some impact on the immediate community and environment. So the stakeholders will be the residents, the media, and even government authorities.
When do you intend holding the event? Did you schedule enough time for you to research and plan your event? Will the scheduled date be suitable for invited guests and all parties concerned?
Where is the event taking place? Is it an indoor or outdoor event? Did you consider the comfort and accessibility for your guests?
What activities are going to take place at the event? Will your proposed activities match the needs and expectations of your guests? Are the proposed activities in line with your principles and values?
Memorable events are not created from the blue. They need careful planning and execution. The larger the event, the more time it will take you as a professional event planner to plan the event.
These days, there’s no room for mediocrity. Your clients deserve the best. So give some serious thought to answering these when creating your next event. Catch you later.
