Getting the most from your event is relatively simple. People always ask me how. I say: make a plan and stick to it! Each part serves a purpose and all elements you add should enhance this. By not straying from your established purpose, you are able to effectively and efficiently produce an event that will create results.
Get the Most from Your Event
- Why are you having this event?
- for networking?
- to celebrate?
- as a fundraiser?
- Who is attending?
- your clients or business associates?
- friends and family?
- general public?
- What is the purpose?
- creating memories?
- encourage establishment of new relationships?
- make money (for a business or charity)?
Getting the most from your event is easy if you keep these questions at the forefront while you plan. As you plan the event from start to finish, keep in mind that each element should serve your purpose. Ask your self “why am I choosing this?” and ask often. By doing this you’ll likely get the most from every dollar you spend. You’ll also keep your event on track and keep from straying too far with distractions along the way (which is super easy to do).
The best way to not stray – keep a list of your goals attached to your planning list. Make sure every part ties in and guides you to fulfilling your goals.
