Planning and organizing a corporate event is no small feat. From selecting the venue to creating the event program, there are several considerations that need to be taken into account in order to create a successful event. With this guide, you will have all the information needed to successfully plan and execute your next corporate event.
Establish Event Goals and Strategies.
Before starting the planning process, it is important to set clear goals and strategies for the event. Developing a plan of action can help ensure that all elements of the event are chosen or created with these objectives in mind. Start by establishing measurable goals, setting a budget, and determining expectations from attendees. From there you’ll be able to create realistic timelines to work within and effectively manage your resources toward achieving these goals.
Develop an Event Timeline.
Once you’ve established your goals and budget, it is important to identify the elements of the event that will contribute toward those objectives. Developing an event timeline helps keep all parties involved on track throughout the planning process. This timeline should include deadlines for purchasing venue space, catering services, audio-visual setup, decorations etc. so that each component can be realistically implemented for a successful event.
Choose a Venue & Secure Necessary Resources.
Event venues should be chosen based on several factors, including the space requirements of your event, your budget, and the availability of necessary resources. Furthermore, you’ll want to consider what equipment you may require for a successful event – such as tables, chairs, audio-visual equipment, catering services and so forth – and if they can be provided at the venue. It is important to coordinate these details early in the timeline to ensure there are no last minute delays or added expenses.
Create an Event Program.
Once your venue and service providers have been booked, it’s time to create an event program. This will outline the key components of your corporate event, such as the keynote speakers, panel discussions, activities and more. A detailed program should be created to ensure all participants understand their roles and expectations prior to the event. Additionally, if you are using videos in your presentation, this is when you will want to develop their storyline.
Market the Event and Manage RSVPs/Registration.
Once the event program is in place, you’ll want to begin marketing the event to potential attendees. This should include email and personal invites, as well as outreach through various social media channels. It’s also important to design an invitation that resonates with your target audience. You may also choose to create an online registration or RSVP system for easier tracking of participant information.
