Format and Purpose
It is important to formulate the goals and the things that are possible. The purpose of the event is important for formulating a plan. Are you going to convey a message or knowledge to the participants, express gratitude or are your organizing for raising funds? These are some questions and the format will depend on their answers. You will get an idea about duration, concept, role distribution, catering, sound and layout of the hall.
Pay Attention to Planning
When you know about the format of the event, then it is time to plan it. It should include, content, promotion of the event and logistics. Define tasks for each member of the team and write them in a document. So, the members know their responsibilities. We will recommend you to prepare a list of main tasks and try to full as much detail as possible including specific steps to complete the tasks. It is also better to get an estimate of the time needed for completing the tasks. Sometimes, we ignore it and underestimate things.
Draft Your Budget
Obviously, you need a budget to organize the event. The list of the tasks will help you get an estimate of the budget. Moreover, it is better to reserve some extra cash in case of unforeseeable situations. Once, I organized a party, it was an open-air event. Before the start of the event, the rain started and we have to move to another location. We transported all of the furniture, equipment to a new place. These kinds of situations can affect your budget. So, it is better to be prepared for such conditions.
The Devil is in the Detail
A smaller detail can please your guests. Just think about the smaller details like how you will greet participants, what kind of music will be played and how they will register, dressing of your team. These kinds of smaller details can surprise your guest.
Always Have Plan B
We will recommend you to check the location yourself. See that all of the things like air-conditioning, toilets, equipment, and doors are good. Moreover, you need to have a plan B when planning an event. Having a Plan B will ensure a successful event organizing. I always have a Plan B whenever I organize an event. There are many unexpected things that can happen.
