Corporate event planning can be stressful, from identifying the goals of a conference to marketing the event. Read on to see how we can help share the load to ensure success.
Steps to make your corporate event a success
Identify your goals and audience – once you have identified your target audience and decided whether you are inviting existing or potential clients, your goals will fall into place – do you want to raise your organisation’s profile, generate new business or increase brand awareness? Armed with this information, choosing a time and a venue for the event will fall into place (see below).
Fix a budget – while you may not be the one setting the budget, it does need to be realistic and including a contingency of say 10% is sensible. Once the budget is in place, you can arrange suppliers.
Make a plan - it’s important not to overlook any of the key elements so include venue and venue décor, food and drink plus entertainment, ticketing and marketing. There may be other areas that need to be included in your plan, such as providing accommodation for attendees who are travelling to the event.
Delegate the tasks – whether you are an event planner or the person tasked with organising events in your workplace, allocating jobs to different people will free you up to focus on the bigger picture. If you have access to people with experience in these areas, you will be able to concentrate on your role, knowing the details are being well cared for.
