If you could only name 3, which tips would you suggest creating a successful event?
1. WHY? - Have a clear objective. Making sure you understand the client’s objective for holding the event is vital. This makes sure the client gets the event that they wanted and also they can measure the effectiveness of the event.
2. HOW? – It’s all in the planning. Once you have established why you the client wants to hold the event you now need to work out the details. Having a written plan on how you are going to achieve the brief helps keeps the event to budget and the client can easily be updated throughout the run up to the event.
3. WHAT! – Expect the unexpected! Anything can happen in the world of events to upset the most detailed plan, be ready for last minute changes and stay calm!
