1. Create Your Blueprint
When you first start planning an event it is important to create a plan or a blueprint. You need to understand what your event goal is in order to work towards that. Get very clear on why you are putting this event together in the first place.
Take the time to create a wish list of the type of attendees that you want. Think about who will benefit the most from your event. While you are creating your blueprint you also want to think about your budget and how much you are willing to spend.
2. Location, Location, Location
Once you have your blueprint laid out, you can start looking for the perfect location to host your event. We recommend using a reputable company such as https://www.thevendry.com/ to help you find the perfect place for your needs (whether you need a live venue or a virtual venue).
Keep in mind that if you are hosting a live event, the location is going to be a major key to the attendance turn out. It is a good idea to involve the local community around the venue once you have a location picked out. Look for caterers in that area, and other local businesses that you can support.
3. Plan the Event Day
You will also want to take the time to plan the logistics of the day, including arrival times for everyone you hired such as caterers, photographers, florists, printers, decorators, speakers, presenters, etc. Create a tentative timeline for the day off so that your team is on the same page as you.
Do not forget to leave some extra time for everyone participating to network and mingle.
