How to plan an event to remember
Obviously event planning is a bit of a skill, but if you are thinking of putting your own bash together, here’s some quick and easy tips to get you started.
Decide on the objectives of your event
What’s your event being held for? Is it a celebration? A fund raiser? Who do you want to come? Why do you want those people to come? How many people should come? Where will you hold it? When will you hold it?
Once you have the answers to these questions you need to find availability of venue and determine how many people the venue will hold.
How much budget do you have? What do you want to spend on the venue? How much for food and drink? Are there other outgoings? What about event bands?
Select the date and reserve the venue
Make sure you don’t have any clashes and then go ahead and reserve the venue you have chosen for your event.
Licences and permits
Check whether you need any licences or permits. Fill in the forms and get them sent off in good time.
Start planning the event in detail. So what will the set-up look like? Tables and chairs? What staff do you need? Do you need special audio or visual equipment?
Create a publicity plan
How will you ensure everyone knows about the event? Get flyers etc. to the printer and make sure they’re distributed. Get a social media information campaign up and running.
Consider the following
- Will you need security?
- How much will that cost? Who will provide it?
- Risk assessment.
Choose your event band
Choosing the right band for your event can really make or break your function. You want a group who are professional and dynamic and who have a wide repertoire of music to choose from for a great set list. What sort of vibe are you trying to create? Do you want to entertain or impress? These are some of the questions you need to address before choosing your event band.
