“This will be the event of the year…. the party to surpass all before it… an experience like none other.” For the uninitiated business event planner, the reality is that you’ll probably get a headache trying to focus on what you really want, compared to what you can afford or are willing to spend.
There are so many things, themes, and choices to make, but take a deeper look and focus in on what you really want. One of the best things you can do to make your event special is be organized and have someone you can trust handling everything that has been put in place, stay that way, so you can enjoy the event. So many small business owners are stressed and too exhausted, to enjoy what should be a memorable event.
So how long have you been thinking about this special event for your business? Have a clue about the cost of a facility, catering, décor or a destination meeting? There are so many questions you should ask yourself and answer before you start planning anything and writing notes, so let’s get started by building a firm foundation. For every idea, thought, or plan, please have a reality check. Even with the best laid plans…. stuff happens!
How much stress am I willing to handle and what is my timeline? Be honest. If you take a few months or more to plan, at the beginning you feel that you can take on the world. Little time to plan is sure to create a higher stress level. Quick choices may cost more or may not be available. The larger the event, the more help from dependable people or services you need. A professional event planner will ask you all the questions and put everything in place. The only thing you should have to do is answer the questions, pay the bill, get dressed and show up on time. What to look for in a planner is something you can discuss with The Party ReduX Showcase in Pottstown.
What is my budget and how many guest? Professional services want commitment, contracts and payment in full prior to services. What you want and what you can afford may be two different things but it is a reality check. Get a realistic figure and stick to it. Before you can even get to what appetizers to serve, this can be the deal breaker! Your guest list is also linked to the budget
Whatever the special business event, being organized, paying attention to detail and not procrastinating will help to pull all the things and people together for an occasion worth remembering.
